    Warne's dislocated shoulder in the VB Series versus England in 2002 was another one that comes to mind. Not as much blood etc as the Gillespie/Waugh collision but the pain on his face made it obvious that all was certainly not well.

    I remember an incident when Meyrick Pringle was hit in the eye by a cricket ball while batting and wearing a helmet, watched the rest of the game from a hospital bed

    Simon Jones and Steve Waugh and Jason Gillespie's injuries are the worst I have seen.

    Obviously the words "MINE!" didn't exist in their voculaborys "sp).
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    From what i've seen, it was the Waugh/Gillespie collision, but that (^) couldn't have been good, seeing as he died.

    yeah he also swallowed his tongue and could of easily choked.

    a couple of people have been known to die during first class matches(see cricket trivia threads), but in the modern era pedro collins sounds like one i definately would not like to have,

    'he was best remembered for an injury of the cruellest kind, when a Jason Gillespie delivery trapped a testicle outside his box'.

    Christ! That brought tears to my eyes just reading it!!!

    Think Bumble Lloyd got a ripper from Tommo in the happy sack in about 75 too. But that smarted a tad!

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Not as bad as the above mentioned, but I didn't enjoy the Mark Vermeulen cracked skull last season.

    Simon Jones was shocking to watch, poor bloke.

    Agreed about the Gillespie/Waugh collision, that was pretty nasty!

    I believe that was the second fractured skull by Mark Vermeulen. I think he is a good player just waiting to happen, but never becomes one.

    Gus Logie's broken nose in close from a Merv pull shot was pretty bad - seeing as though he had a helmet on at the time and apparently it pushed the grill in.

    I got hit in the mouth with a cricket ball in 5th grade (and I was bowling - I've never bowled a half-volley since! haha) and it knocked out one tooth, broke another and also broke my top jaw...........done by a guy who should have been playing 2nds or 3rds, but then if you bowl **** balls it can be dangerous!

    Correct. He got hit before in the nets by his team-mate Travis Friend apparently.

    The Simon Jones and Alex Tudor ones are the worst I have seen in a while.

    I am squemish when it comes to blood, and for the Aussies, the Alex Tudor injury looked remarkedly like Shaun Hart's injury in the prelims this year.
