    Worst cricketing injury?

    Whats the worst injury you guys have seen??

    Personally, it was when Murray Goodwin was fielding at short leg (at Trinidad I think) and he got hit in the back of the neck from a full blooded pull shot.. Ambulance job, but thank god he was okay..

    It has to be Simon Jones in the Ashes, man that had got to hurt. I really felt for him then

    I wouldn't argue against any of the above, but Gatting's broken nose in WI at the start of the 1985/86 tour was quite spectacular. Apparently when one of the fielders retrieved the ball it had a piece of one of Gattings' bones in it

    I didn't see it, but I heard about it on The Twelfth Man..........Bruce Reid snapped in half in a game and they sticky-taped him back together only to see him completely fall apart again. Bill Lawry thought it was hilarious when he snapped in half the second time saying (while laughing) 'Of course he's bloody snapped in half again Tony, you can't sticky-tape a guy back together and expect him to perform to the best of his ability'.

    I don't remember it per se, but I have seen a pic of Peter Lever on his knees in tears 'cos he thought (not without reason) that he'd killed Chatfield.

    England's 1991/2 tour to New Zealand, I believe. The snap of bone was supposed to have been clearly audible. He was screaming in agony.

    He fought his way back from injury but I think he had another problem with the knee which forced him into retirement.
