So there I was, kindly minding my own business on a usual Sunday (a dozen MLB games on various screens, but mostly paying attention to the Wizards-Celtics game) when an unmistakable voice came barreling into my skull like an ice pick through my tympanic membrane.
Kolkata Knight Riders beat Sunrisers Hyderabad today in the IPL by 17 runs, and the losers might be able to blame a destroyed laptop for their offensive failures.
Chris Lynn is absolutely raking for his Kolkata Knight Riders squad in today’s Indian Premier League bout against Gujarat Lions, but nothing sparked the Lynn-Sanity (and yes, that’s what they’re calling it) more than this massive six that the Australian clubbed into the second deck.
Is it too dark for them to continue the South Africa-New Zealand test match? Not yet, according to this guy with a “light meter.”
These Englishmen are enjoying their first exposure to direct sunlight.
West Indies batsman Jonathan Carter spent several minutes on the ground in agony after inside-edging himself right in the nuts during his squad’s one-day international against England today in Barbados. Yowza! The Guardian’s live blog put it thusly:
Rahkeem Cornwall is 24 years old, 6-foot-6, over 300 pounds, and poised to make a big splash. Though he has yet to make his international debut for the West Indies, the pudgy cricketer impressed in yesterday’s exhibition game between England and the West Indies President’s XI, as the two nations warmed up for a…
One foolhardy, nude individual jumped onto the cricket pitch at Monday’s one-day international match between New Zealand and Australia at Auckland’s Eden Park. The streaker ran freely around security, until he was faced with the need to hurdle a wall.
Australian cricketer Hilton Cartwright was tasked with standing in the silly point position—a spot just a few feet away from the batsman—during a Test match against Pakistan today. Cartwright’s corn cob ended up paying a heavy price:
Today’s cricket match between Australia and New Zealand was a big win for the Aussies, letting them keep their number one spot in the one-day international rankings. It also included this completely sick one-handed diving catch from Australia team captain Steve Smith:
A cricket Test match between England and India was interrupted on Thursday when a very good doggie decided to take a stroll on the field.
We’re a few of days late on this one, but you still probably haven’t seen it because it’s a cricket highlight. Anyway, loogit this damn run out!
If you aren’t familiar with cricket, it can be a difficult game to follow. There are a number of elements similar to baseball, paired with others that are utterly unique and sometimes baffling. It can be difficult to understand what strategies the players are pursuing, and even fundamental questions like “who is…
Yo, got your Indian Premier League cricket highlights right here. Delhi Daredevils against Royal Challengers Bangalore, happening thousands of miles away today. Already epic, I know. The Daredevils’ Shreyas Iyer clocks what looks to be a possible 4 until, at a dead sprint in the field, RCB’s Shane Watson catches up to…
I know you don’t care about cricket and can’t make heads-or-tails of its rules, but bear with me here, for this is one hell of a story.
Apologies for the flippant hed, but this is a good cricket catch. It’s Bangladesh’s Soumya Sarkar getting his hands on a ball, realizing his momentum would carry him over the boundary, flipping it up in the air, and coming back to get it.
Corey Anderson is a bowler for New Zealand’s cricket team, and also apparently a future stunt double for action movies. This is like when pitchers catch line drives hit right back at them, only with an order of magnitude more swagger. I have to agree with our lovely-accented commentator here: that was an absolute…
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,…
Melbourne Renegades batsman Chris Gayle decided to act like a butthole when sideline reporter Mel McLaughlin attempted to interview him during a game against the Melbourne Stars. Gayle came at McLaughlin with all kinds of cringe-worthy come-ons, and clearly made her very uncomfortable.
Sometimes in this life, we must take on challenges too big, bite off more than we can chew, and fail, to grow into bigger, more fully realized people. What follows is a short story about a young Australian cricket fan, a watermelon, and testing your limits.
