I've noticed that it's always a source of (fairly constant) amusement in cricketing circles when a player, usually a batsman, is brought to his knees by a searing delivery to the testicles. So what I was looking for in this post is any funny experiences/stories people have relating to perhaps the most severe of cricketing injuries, and definately one of the funniest - perhaps rating slightly above the searing on drive to the ankle bone and the leg glance to the knee-cap.
I used to bowl to my Uncle in the backyard at home, and I think there were 5 or 6 matches that were postponed after I managed to spear one into the nether regions - even at 9 years of age I knew that this was an injury to be laughed at, and the fit of giggles that set in after a cancellation of a series was worth possibly more than the chance to complete the game itself.
Since I've hit and laughed at many a batsman in indoor cricket, and managed to get Bevo in a one-off game we played against them a couple of years ago - there's nothing like a couple of thousand people all laughing in unison.
The funniest moment at club level was perhaps when our opener got hit, and it took us about two minutes to recover our composure before someone actually thought about going out and getting him. We let him rest for about an hour and then, still in obvious agony, we let him do a stint at square leg!
