Playing in ‘The Hundred’ league in England, Alex Hales, the England batsman was hit on his crotch, twice in two balls. It was a painful evening surely, for Alex Hales. Hales was batting for the Trent Rockets side while Reece Topley was bowling for the Oval Invincibles.
In the video, we can see Alex Hales getting hit straight on his crotch on Topley’s 4th ball. Hales gets down on the ground and looks in terrible pain. We also see him banging his fist on the ground, repeatedly in agony after getting hit. That’s not it. Alex Hales somehow readies himself for the next ball and even then, the ball gets deflected off his bat and hits his crotch one more time. That’s two in two for Hales!
Take a look at the video:

Alex Hales, after getting hit in this manner was not able to take his side over the line. Oval Invincibles defeated Trent Rockers by 9 runs. Trent Rockets lost their second match in the league but maintained their pole position in the league ahead of Oval Invincibles.
The match was being played in ‘The Hundred’ league which is an England-based cricket league introducing a completely new format in cricket. In this format, each side faces 100 balls while every bowler bowls 5 balls in a row. The concept of an ‘over’ is not present in The Hundred. A bowler can bowl up to 20 balls. In Hundred, there is no concept like a ‘Super Over’; a tie is a tie.
