Injuries are a part and parcel of life especially while playing professional cricket. Cricketers have often sustained injuries while playing for their teams on the international and domestic level due to a variety of reasons.

The main reasons of players getting injured over the years have been either physical fatigue or getting hit by the ball or staining certain body parts while playing a cricket game. However, there have been incidents when the cricketers sustained injuries in some of the weirdest ways even before stepping on the cricket field to play the matches.

5 cricketers who got injured in a bizarre manner

1. Jonny Bairstow

England cricketer Jonny Bairstow is in amazing form in 2022 especially in Test cricket. He has already scored six hundreds and was being looked at as an option to open the innings in the T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia. England dropped Jason Roy for the tournament due to his poor form and were expecting for Bairstow to fill up.

However, hours after the WC squad was announced, it was revealed that Bairstow suffered a freak injury at a Golf Course and was ruled out. The cricketer slipped while playing the golf and has been ruled out of action.

He will miss the upcoming Pakistan tour as well where England are scheduled to play a seven-match T20I series. England will miss his antics with the bat at the World Cup as well and the replacement for him is yet to be named.
