Superstar cricketer Ellyse Perry rushed from the pitch in dramatic scenes on Saturday evening to check if a young boy who was hit in the head by one of her shots was OK.

Perry, playing for the Sydney Sixers against the Melbourne Stars at North Sydney Oval, smashed one of the last deliveries of the innings down the ground to the left of the side screen, but unusually, quickly ran after her shot.

As her batting partner Dane van Niekerk and some of the Stars fielders began to follow Perry to the fence, it became clear a fan had been hit with the ball.

Hacking attempt!

The fan, a child no older than 10, could be seen lying on his back with a member of one of the team's staff holding an ice pack to his forehead.

An ambulance was called and the boy was conscious. Someone who witnessed the incident said the ball flew over the fence, deflected onto a wooden chair and then struck the boy in the forehead.

During the innings break Perry went to the boy to check on his condition and then gave him her hat.

Perry and the Sixers made a WBBL record score, getting to 4-242 in their 20 overs.

Perry made 91no off 49 deliveries after opening the batting while the Sixers' first drop Ashleigh Gardner made 114 off 52 balls – the fastest century in WBBL history.

Cricket Australia said they would provide an update on the boy's condition once he had been properly assessed.
