Yes, that headline is accurate. Today in Australia’s Big Bash League (which, true to its moniker, is getting a lot of attention in these parts recently) Melbourne Stars bowler Adam Zampa earned a dismissal after the Renegades’ Peter Nevill slapped a line drive that went off his teammate’s bat, then off Zampa’s face,…

What we have here is a scuffle that broke out during a cricket match between the Cleveland County Cricket Club and the Willow Cuts in Bermuda. Keep your eye on the player in blue, who approaches the Willow Cuts batsman from behind. His name is Jason Anderson, and he’s a real shit.
Sri Lankan cricketer Kumar Sangakkara retired after playing his final test cricket match against India the other day.

The Cricket World Cup begins this weekend in Australia, and the rest of the globe will be paying attention as India defends its title in what should be the biggest sporting event of 2015. Domestically? We can expect, well, crickets.
The Perth Scorchers took on the Melbourne Stars in something called the Big Bash League yesterday, but more interestingly, a Scorchers batter nailed a seagull with a hit.

This is Kieron Pollard of the Mumbai Indians making one of the coolest catches you will ever see, in cricket or elsewhere.
Australian cricketer Daniel Worrall found himself a little bored during a match last Friday. Suddenly struck by inspiration, he decided to draw the dick and balls you see above onto the pitch, an act of lewdness for which he has now been suspended.
