    Cricketing Injuries

    Feeling like Nasser Hussain at the moment (although not as good)....

    Ive cracked my left thumb five times (ive only been playing four years), cracked my right thumb at the beginning of the season, and ive just cracked my ring finger... all done while fielding...

    Bowling legspin was the most painful thing imaginable, couldnt feel much by the end of it, although i took 2-44..

    Anyone else suffering at the moment, whats your worst or weirdest sporting injury? Or dont you get them?

    LE's sporting catalogue of disaster

    Aged 9 - cracked rib playing rugby. Pain factor 7/10, 9/10 every time I breathed for a month.
    Aged 10 - went off 5 metre diving board, hit 3 metre diving board on the way down. Hospital, skin grafts. Pain factor 2/10 at the time, 9/10 after I woke up, 10/10 whenever they changed the paraffin gauze dressings every day for 6 weeks.
    Aged 15 - torn knee cartilage playing football. Pain factor 6/10
    Aged 16 - broken big toe playing 5-a-side football. Pain factor 4/10
    Aged 21 - broken thumb playing cricket. Pain factor 4/10
    Aged 25 or so - broken collar bone playing football. Pain factor 6/10
    Aged 25 or so - broken index finger (cricket) - Pain factor 2/10
    Aged 30 or so - a beaut. 5 breaks and 2 dislocations in my right hand (fabulous one-handed catch left-handed, hit the ground with my right hand and fell on it, totally smashing 2 fingers. Pain factor 0/10 at the time (I just put a wicket-keeping inner glove on and soaked it, finished the match and went to hospital later). Pain factor after I'd seen the X-rays - 9/10
    Aged 40 - broken ankle (my last but one cricket match). Pain factor 5/10
    Aged 40 - dislocated shoulder (my last cricket match). Pain factor 3/10 until our umpire put it back, then 9/10 for the car drive to hospital (I was driving).
    Aged 45 - snapped tendon (finger) - tenpin bowling. Pain factor 4/10.
    Aged 48 - torn cartilage again (tenpin bowling). Pain factor 6/10

    I might have missed a few.

    Ouch!

    That beauty where you dived on your right hand and broke everything, well pretty much the same thing happened to our opening bowler two weeks ago, although he didnt look like having a pain factor of 0/10

    I broke my nose playing rugby, a godsend because it meant i could justify giving the damn sport up :P

    The hand just went totally numb - shock, I suppose.
    Forgot about breaking my nose twice.

    Once playing football, and once whilst playing with my daughter who was 3 at the time ('get that stitched' she said as she nutted me)

    Do drinking injuries count? A pal of mine spoke to me when we were in a wine bar in Bristol in about 1985. I turned round - and walked straight into the neck of a wine bottle he was offering.
    Broke my eye socket.

    i got my first ever half century batting with a broken thumb.
    the day before the game i broke is wicketkeeping in practice. Then in the game on 40* i got hit on it and retired hurt, when i came off they told me i was on 40 so i went back out and make another 17 to finish with 57* and i declared.

    Worst one i did was batting in the nets, nit my ankle with the bat and cracked something in there, i was supposed to miss 4 weeks, but i battled on bravely.

    Is that supposed to say "hit"?

    If so, how did you do that?!

    i'm glad to say i've never really had a bad injury in my life. although i think i might have done something to the muscle/bone in the side of my foot. i came down the stairs and when i put my foot onto the ground at the bottom i twisted it(dunno if this has happened to n e 1 else, but you know when sometimes ur walking and u sort of stumble and land with ur foot on the side?) well that's wat happened only this time i had all my weight on it. it hurt a fair bit. i did it about 2-3 weeks ago but i haven't got it checked or n e thing, it still hurts on occasions. i can;t be stuffed going to the doctor for sumthin so minor.

    also on teh subject of broken noses, my friend has broken his 7 times. he says it doesn't hurt it just fells like as sore as when u cut urself(not a deep cut).

    i guess i've been pretty lucky. considering i was in a car accident with my family when i was 3. my dad broke his ribs and nose and ended up in a wheelchair(he's out now). my mum passed out and broke sumthin. my sister had glass in her face and her colalr bone snapped and came out of her skin(yeah it actually came out of her skin:O). i remember the whole thing. but i was left with an oval shaped cut about the size of a toffee on the top of my wrist. so i guess i'm pretty lucky with injuries. also i seem to land well. the number of times i've been slamemd down in rugby are unbelievable. and every1 is like OMG is he dead has he broken sumthin. and i normally get up and start playign again.

    I dislocated my shoulder hiting a six once :O that was really painfull because the bat renched my arm around backwards in the follow through.

    I was also hit in the face with a beamer once as well but thats a bit vage I was out cold for about 2-3 minutes I cant remember it happening but I do have a small scar on my nose to prove it .

    Lesson I learned dont about that? dont try and play the hook shot to fast head high beamers lol.. Just get out they way thats if you pick them up at all.

    I did that once, the bowler was a slow trundler, I was trying to heave the ball out of the ground, put my front leg forward, bat came down heavily and crashed on my left ankle....... my whole leg went numb for half a minute before it hurt me so badly i had to leave practice.

    In only my third ever outing with the bat I got a hip-high full toss from a very fast bowler which hit my hand and really really hurt.

    A year ago I dislocated the joint at the base of my right little finger, 'till this day it really hurts when I take a catch.

    Just a week ago whilst practising for the U-19 national trials, I badly twisted my left knee and had to miss the trials because I couldn't run, jog, or bend the knee at all, it really was annoying.

    Years ago when I used to my "Bradman" training, I banged my knee several times playing the flick shot.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Ah, cricket comedy at its finest.
    It happens in tenpin quite a lot. Many novices bowl 'off the wrong foot' and give their ankle a resounding whack. Funny when it's an 8lb ball.
    Hysterically funny when it's a 15lb ball.
