Blood was coming out from Aston's face

Aston was ready to take the catch, but he slipped before the ball came in his hand and the ball went straight into the middle of his head, causing him to fall. After this the fielders and batsmen came running towards them and came and asked their condition. The injury caused bleeding from his head, then he was taken out. However, during investigation, he did not find any serious injury.
