As a rule of thumb, you shouldn’t fire arrows at people – or indeed anywhere near them. It is what is known as “very dangerous”.
Someone fired an arrow into the middle of the Surrey v Middlesex match today.

Cricketers don’t wear armour. That thing would absolutely tear through a cable-knit sweater, so everyone went off.
Any of you say “that’s a crossbow bolt, not an arrow,” you’re missing the bigger picture here, which is that medieval projectiles shouldn’t barge their way into cricket matches uninvited.
