Why Cricket is not a Gentle Game

This short clip, shows you have to be pretty tough to play cricket. This is a high motion video of a cricket ball breaking the rim of the helmet of batsmen Daniel Flynn and thus doing him serious damage to his face.

He actually managed to walk off the field, but has been in a bad way ever since, the accident happened last friday.

He had a bit of a relapse today, but should pull through. A cricket ball is much harder than a baseball, so you kinda know what kind of pain this poor man has been in the last few days.

Unfortunately, according to our news tonight, there is more damage than first thought, he is going through pain and the doctors say he shouldnt be in any. So thoughts with this fine sports person from New Zealand
