A senior cricketer is back at the crease, one year after ‘dying’ during a game.
Left-arm spinner Jim Smallbone suffered a heart attack after just one over of Hampshire’s over-60s match against Sussex in June 2012.
With three of his major arteries blocked, Smallbone collapsed to the ground while in to bat, where opposing wicketkeeper Mick Tindall saved his life with vital first aid.
Tindall, 62, said: “I was standing next to him when he went into cardiac arrest. The bowler was about to start his run-up when Jim backed away and then fell to the floor.”
