Australia’s Big Bash cricket league showcased a bizarre incident that resembled 'man getting hit by football'.
In this case, the incident was 'batman getting hit by a cricket ball', not once, but on two occasions Liam Livingstone received two painful blows to the groin region on Tuesday.
During the encounter between Perth Scorchers and Melbourne Renegades, Englishman Livingstone managed to reach the half-century mark, but was made to suffer during his time at the crease.
However, he did help his side Perth Scorchers beat the Melbourne Renegades.
Facing up against bowler Richard Gleeson, the Cumbria native was first struck painfully trying to smash a leg-side delivery for six.
A brief cry came from the batsman, but he did manage to strike a six moments later when launching a delivery onto the roof of Geelong’s GMHBA Stadium.
Again, the Renegades got their revenge on Livingstone as Will Sutherland caught the batsman, who was attempting to smash the oncoming ball for six. However, he misjudged the fast delivery which continued and caught him flush on the groin.
This time around the batsman’s yell of ‘oh no!’ was picked up on the stump mic to send the commentators into hysterics.
One commentator in Aussie legend Michael Hussey joked he might not get up from this, as medics rushed on to attend the Scorchers batsman.
“Let’s hope he’s okay," Hussey added while holding back the giggles.
Livingstone was on the score of 26 at the time of the second blow. He eventually regathered his thoughts and his unmentionables to hit 59 and help deliver the win for his side.
That awarded the 26-year-old the Man of the Match award, with his six to the roof winning official moment of the match.News Now - Sport News
