Watch: Mark Richardson cramp up in the funniest manner: Injuries hurt and they hurt real bad, but to only the one who owns it, for others it might well turn into laughter. Cricketers sometimes get hit at awkward places, that they cannot even sooth up themselves. The ball is very harsh onto the batsmen almost getting them into tears and on the ground a few times. Here is a rare occasion, where an injury or someone’s pain will end up giving you a laugh. Watch Mark Richardson cramp up in the funniest manner.

It was the India vs New Zealand test match, played in India, the conditions, the pitch all for the home team. But the visitors had till this moment scored 232 runs in their first innings for the loss of just one wicket. A favorable position to be in, when you are travelling overseas. The Kiwi’s dressing room looked relaxed and at ease. When this suddenly happened, their opening batsman Mark Richardson was facing Indian leg-spinner Anil Kumble with an attacking field set.

Kumble bowled one of his leg spin deliveries and Richardson tried to open up a bit and swept the ball, but right at that moment we heard two sounds, the one of the ball hitting the bat was over powered by a huge cry. When the frame returns from the fielder to the pitch we realize the batsman is down on all fours.

Replays show while trying to sweep the Anil Kumble delivery Mark Richardson in a stance for the shot cramped up his back leg and when he tried to shift his weight on the right leg again all he managed was a cry, got dis-balanced and fell on the ground.

It sounds pretty serious in words but once you watch the entire video I ensure you a good thorough laugh. As you will get to see all the fielders, laughing VVS Laxman found so much fun in it that had it not been for Virender Sehwag he would have fallen down laughing as well. Not only the opponents, when the view switches over to the dressing room we can see Richardson’s teammates too giggling at what had just happened, even the crowd seemed to enjoy this light moment in an otherwise tense game of cricket.
