An umpire at a cricket match in the Israeli city of Ashdod has died after being hit by a ball.

A batsmans shot struck Hillel Oscar in the neck, possibly after a ricochet from the stumps at his end of the pitch.

The incident comes just two days after Australian batsman Phillip Hughes died of a head injury caused by being struck by a ball at a match in Sydney.

Umpires in cricket, unlike some players, do not wear helmets.

However, such incidents are extremely rare.

An umpire at a match in Wales died five years ago after a ball thrown by a fielder hit him on the head.
