Cricket has been rocked by the death of young Pakistani batsman Zubair Ahmed after he was hit on the head by a bouncer.

Zubair, playing for his club, clearly had no enforcement from the organisers and the officials about the need for wearing the helmet.

Aussie cricket great Dean Jones, coach of Islamabad United in the Pakistani Champions League, expressed his remorse on Twitter. "Condolences to his family", Jones said.

On Tuesday, Australia vice-captain David Warner was also struck on the neck by a bouncer bowled by teammate Josh Hazelwood during an intra-squad practice match. Warner was declared fit and available for the Bangladesh tour upon further examination but was asked to sit out the ongoing match.

A focus on player safety has been heightened ever since the tragic death of Australian batsman Phillip Hughes less than three years ago.

Former Australian Test opener Phil Hughes had died after being hit on the neck during a Sheffield Shield match in November, 2014.
