CAPE TOWN, South Africa (AP) -- A former first-class cricketer in South Africa has died after being hit in the head by the ball while batting. He was 32.

The national body Cricket South Africa says Darryn Randall died Sunday at a hospital in the southern town of Alice in the Eastern Cape.

He was struck on the side of the head and collapsed during a league match. It was not clear if he was wearing a helmet.

Randall, a wicketkeeper-batsman, played four first-class games for the Border province in 2009.

CSA chief executive Haroon Lorgat expressed the federation's condolences and said it would be offering counseling to those involved in the match.
