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.
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 accolades are rolling in—the Sri Lankan president offered him the post of High Commissioner (ambassador, sort of) to the United Kingdom—and everybody is weighing in on his legacy and place in…
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. It wasn't quite Randy Johnson demolishing a dove with a fastball—the damn thing didn't explode—but I'm sure it didn't feel good to the poor…
An Israeli cricket umpire has died after a ball came off a batsman's bat, hit the wicket, and then struck him in the chest and neck region, according to Haaretz. The amateur league umpire—Israel has no professional cricket league—was in the proper position behind the wicket, but unlike in baseball, cricket umpires…
Australian pro cricket player Phil Hughes is dead, days after suffering a severe head injury due to being struck by a bouncer thrown by New South Wales bowler Sean Abbott.
Australian cricketer Phil Hughes is in critical condition today after being struck in the head by a bouncer during a match at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
From New Zealand, poor Ian Smith watched a six (think a home run) sail out of the field and into the parking lot, directly onto his rental car. "How am I going to get out of that?" Smith cried. "At least I have evidence."
On the surface level, this is simply a highlight of a great catch. Fan Andrew McCulloch was able to fall over and get his hand under the cricket ball after running barefoot, slipping and sliding all the while, down a slight slope. But it gets even better.
Cricket Australia will no longer set off flamethrowers at its matches after nearly burning its own captain to a crisp as he attempted to retrieve a ball past the boundary line.
Hey, pal! There's a match going on! Get outta here!
It was an especially star-studded Royal Box at Wimbledon on Saturday, including recently retired cricketer Sachin Tendulkar, very likely the greatest batsman of all time. For some reason, Maria Sharapova was asked about him:
