    Cricket Fighters

    LO-Fucking-L. I love cricket. Because cricketers are funny.

    Let's start in New Zealand, because this shit is fresh.

    Jesse Ryder is an All Rounder who plays International Cricket for New Zealand. Not that any of you give a fuck, especially if you're from North America, but let's just say he's decent player. But, he has problems with liquor and discipline and shit and is known for pissing off his team mates and running his mouth.
    Mark Watson is a Journalist who has gone on record saying Ryder is full of shit. Ryder (the player) in response challenges him to a boxing match. Because that's how real men solve their fucking problems and prove that they are not indisciplined alcoholics, or something.
    Watson not only accepts, but shows up. Hilarity Ensues:



    Less Hilarious story, but if you follow cricket in England you know former captain Adam Hollioake is into that cage-fightin' shit. He's fucking 40, and after a long cricket career he is now dodging punches instead of shiny red balls.

    His debut:




    As far as sports goes, cricket is the only one where the games can last five days and you spend 3 of those 5 days sitting in the shade reading a fucking book. If those motherfuckers can get into fighting, then you should stop being a pussy.

    LO-motherfucking-L

    i watched that whole event that jesse ryder was on the other night. i actually thought the other guy was gonna take it right up til they got in the ring and ryder started moving around, he looked far more like he knew what he was doing. funny fight. cricket is the most boring fucking sport on earth, maybe he spends his time in the outfield shadowboxing?

      I had no idea there were "bad boys of cricket". Last sport in the world I'd imagine crossing over into MMA.

      That's like a grudge match between synchronized swimmers, but with less muscle.

      Thanks for sharing the lulz!

        Ryder's always been a scrappy little shit. Very much the "pick a fight with some random at the pub" kind of guy. Mark Watson's only real hope was always going to be that Ryder spent too much time getting pissed and eating McD's to worry about training, but obviously the chance to beat up a journalist was enough motivation for him.

          Cricket is a two nation sport.

            One of those nations is South Africa, and we're just "bad boys" by definition.

                Incidentally, I was at the match in Kingston where New Zealand was utterly Annihilated by The West Indies. And the anyone who gets annihilated by the West Indies should be fucking embarrassed. Maybe they could have used Ryder...

                  I've only ever seen one cricket match, but I remember it being pretty damn cool.

                    So are the the cricket fights like north american tough man competitions except the fighters are picked to settle the score over a major dispute between the two of them? Essentially was one guy challenged to a duel for talking shit?

                      Yeah. A cricketer challenged a Journalist to a duel for yammering on the airways. But that shit is fucking rare. I think it has only ever happened in New Zealand.

                      It's rarity is what makes it so fucking hilarious.


                      Cricketers drink tea and chill out if they're from England. If they're from the Caribbean, they drink rum and chill out. I don't know what the Indians or Pakistani drink before they chill out, but I'm pretty sure they get fucked up. And South Africans are too busy talking funny to drink anything at all, but they also chill out. Cricket has to be the chillest sport in the world. 2 motherfuckers taking up MMA and boxing is so far out of left field it might as well be baseball (damn, that pun was fucking good).

                        Most of the dudes in my office play cricket, and they're all from India. We hosted a multiple IT company cricket tournament last year. I wanted to like it, but goddamn its a boring sport. I spent most of the day hanging out with the Indian girls in the audience, which apparently is sort of frowned upon.

                            Beer is the Aussie cricket team. David Boon's record 52 beers on the flight to England still stands.
