If you saw the Poms playing against Australia last (southern hemisphere) summer in the Ashes series, you wouldn't even need to ask that question. When it comes to finding new and exciting ways to fark right up, the English cricket team never disappoints.

Here's the very first ball of the series, it pretty much kept going this way...

A propensity for ridiculous injuries is one of the major things cricket and baseball seem to have in common.

Some of the weirdest include 'broke a rib while sneezing', 'hair dye accident', 'aquarium cleaning accident', 'hit in the face with their own bat', and 'inability to put on trousers'

'Broken leg while playing golf' seems fairly reasonable by comparison
