Baseball injuries and cricket

Today column on deaths caused by baseballs. I thought whether there were any in cricket where there are similar dangers to spectators?

I know of no spectator being killed or indeed any players, but in cricket (unlike in baseball), its perfectly legal (and a common tactic) to aim for the body of the batsman means that there have been many bad injuries and at least two cardiac arrests have been caused (thankfully not fatal) by being struck by a ball. Anyothers? In othern sports?
