new Delhi. If a spider cam falls behind a player in the field and because of that he falls down on his face, then it is bound to surprise anyone. Something similar happened in the second Test being played in Melbourne between Australia and South Africa. In fact, on the second day of the Melbourne Test, South African pacer Enrique Norkia narrowly escaped being a victim of a major accident. While fielding, a spider cam collided with Norkia and he fell down on his face. For some time the fellow players could not understand what had happened.
This incident with Enrique Norkia happened after lunch on the second day of the Melbourne Test. At that time the 48th over of Australia’s innings was over. David Warner and Steve Smith were batting. Australia’s score was 176 runs at the loss of 2 wickets. After this there was a dinks break and the players were drinking water. Meanwhile, Norkia was returning to his fielding position. At the same time, the Spider Cam of Fox Sports came rapidly from behind and collided with him.
The speed of the camera was very high. Norkia fell down while colliding with him. After this, fellow players looked at him. However, he did not get hurt much and he got up on his own.
