Reports from Pakistan say Ahmed was hit during a match on August 14 and later died.

In a bad piece of news coming in from Pakistan, club cricketer Zubair Ahmed died after being struck by a bouncer in a game in Mardan on August 14.

Last year, Australia's cricket board made it compulsory for players to wear helmets when facing fast and medium-paced bowling in line with recommendations from a review into the Phillip's death.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) has introduced new regulations for helmet safety during international matches.

The tweet indicates that Zubair was not wearing a helmet at the time the bouncer struck him - a grim reminder of the dangers of playing the game without protective gear.

Former Australia cricketer Dean Jones also expressed condolences in his message and said, "Its so sad to hear".

Ahmed scored an unbeaten 111 in a Twenty20 match in 2014 in his four matches for the Quetta Bears. The bowler in that instance was Josh Hazlewood.

David Warner walked from the field and retired hurt after he was hit on the helmet in Darwin.
