North Italian city of Bolzano bans cricket in parks

The mayor of Bolzano in northern Italy has banned cricket in the city's parks after a ball struck a two-year-old boy in the head. The boy, who was on the family's balcony at the time, recovered from concussion. He was about 100m (330ft) away from the cricket game. Italy's small Afghan and Pakistani migrant communities are keen on cricket, but very few Italians play it. Bolzano is now restricting cricket to tennis courts and a baseball field.
