During the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL 2024) match between Delhi Capitals (DC) and Rajasthan Royals (RR), DC opener Jake Fraser-McGurk suffered a nasty blow right in the opening over bowled by New Zealand pacer Trent Boult. 

After RR skipper Sanju Samson put the opposition to bat on a placid surface, he handed the ball to Boult to start off the proceedings. The Kiwi instantly came around the wicket for right-handed Fraser-McGurk as he took his stance at the striker's end. 

After bowling three tight deliveries, Boult delivered a well-pitched ball that angled back towards the aggressive opener. Fraser-McGurk, attempting a powerful shot, swung wildly but missed completely, resulting in a painful impact in the groin area.

He immediately fell to the ground in agony and could be heard screaming in discomfort. The team's physiotherapist promptly entered the field to assist him and after some delay, the Aussie youngster got back on his feet.

Despite the setback, Fraser-McGurk wasted no time in getting back into the game, swiftly recovering to hit the very next delivery to the boundary.
