Indian left-arm paceman Irfan Pathan was on Monday hit by a small metallic object when he was fielding at mid-wicket fence during Pakistan's run-chase against India in the first cricket one-dayer here.
The bowler immediately brought the matter to the notice of the umpires who called for an early second drinks break.
Thankfully, things did not turn ugly even as the strong 15,000-crowd continued to support the home team vociferously.
The crowd had eventually a lot to cheer about as Pakistan were declared winners by seven runs by the Duckworth/Lewis method after play was stopped because of bad light with the the hosts being 311 for 7 in 47 overs in reply to India's 328 all out in 49.4 overs.
Sachin Tendulkar had been hit by a stone in the third and deciding Test at Karachi earlier on the tour but nothing untoward happened.
