    Sunil Gavaskar deciding to drop himself from any Test Match in Calcutta, because the crowd there booed him and pelted him with fruit.

    Another football one - Marco Negri missed 4 months of the 97/98 season after getting hit in the eye with a squash ball. Although that was rumoured to be bollocks and what really happened is that he'd been caught ****ing Sergio Porrinni's wife and gotten a good punching for it.

    Vengsarkar missed the 1987 semi final due to a suspicious last minute injury. Akram was injured at the last minute in the 1996 WC quarters too.

    Trescothick after being bowled by Lee in a warm-up to the 06/07 Ashes.Was then and there he decided to abort out the whole tour

    Being dismissed by Lee would make anyone depressed.

    Don't know many cricket ones but Sammy Sosa pulled a muscle sneezing in baseball and I'm pretty sure there's been a couple of guys who've cut their hands on bras but I can't remember their names. Ken Giffey got a nad stuck in his box and missed time i think. In basketball I know Tony Allen tore his ACL dunking AFTER the final buzzer in celebration. Drew Gooden missed games with an infected hair follicle and Monta Ellis nearly had his contract voided from falling off a scooter and lieing about the injury as his contract limits him from riding scooters.

    If it's not just injuries we're talking about Gilbert Arenas and Javaris Crittenton got long suspensions for bringing guns into the locker room and pulling them on each other over a gambling debt apparently.

    U.S sports have the most crazy stuff going on.

    Actually the Barry Ferguson-Allan McGregor boozegate shenanigans from 2009 is a similar example to the current Australia example.

    Craig McDermott has this locked as twice he's been ruled out of big tours; England in '93 when he had a twisted bowel (ate English food, eh) and WI in '95 when he damaged his foot jumping down from a rock wall at the beach or something similar.
