Both on Sunday and Tuesday night we have been watching the Twenty20 cricket between Australia and South Africa. This format is considered to be the rock n roll version of the game, and on Sunday night a new star emerged. David Warner smashed the ball all around the ground. He didn't deliver on Tuesday, but considering that he hasn't even played state cricket, it's pretty amazing for him to be in the Australian side playing in front of 60000 people at the MCG.
The other side of the equation is finding yourself facing balls that are being bowled at you at speeds of greater than 150kms an hour, which can be painful if you get hit in the wrong place. This happened on Sunday night, and the player didn't end up playing on Tuesday because his hip bone still hurt.
