Correct way to park at any cricket match rather drive home without the back window rather than the front— lee hodgson (@lhodgson936) June 21, 2021
"The last time this happened. The car dealer didn't charge any money for the repairs. I think Kevin O'Brien hit that time," wrote another user.

Asif Ali is a British amateur cricketer. He was playing for Illingworth St. Mary's Cricket Club against Sowerby St Peter's in Sunday League action in West Yorkshire when the incident took place.
Ali lofted the ball for a massive six. But instead of celebrating his massive six, Ali was left shaking his head at the irony of the situation.
"When the ball was going towards my car, (I said) oh no, no, no - what's going on?" Ali was quoted as saying by the ITV News. "It straight hit the screen, I was shocked."
"I have been playing for this club for a long time but never have I brought my car in the car park, it's always parked outside," he added.
