(Video) Hilarious village cricket footage ends with player copping a bat to the face

Village Cricket

Ollie Phillips

Village cricket is truly the gift that keeps on giving, but it will be difficult to beat this video of a run-out batsman accidentally hitting his partner in the face with his bat. The cricket itself is hilariously amateur, a double-bouncer being plinked towards mid-off and the two batters finding themselves stationary half-way down the pitch, frozen by indecision. The non-striker is eventually run out, and is not at all subtle in letting his teammate know who he thought was at fault. After hitting his pal by accident, the scene ends with an apologetic hug and plenty of belly laughs from the opposition.
