Piers Morgan cops a beating from Brett Lee

Here is a bit of joy for non-liberals, non-Piers Morgan tragics, and non-CNN fans.

The Brett Lee Vs Piers Morgan showdown that was alluded to in a previous post occurred today. The origins of it was Morgan’s trenchant criticism of the English batsmen for being ‘gutless’ while facing the express bowling of the Australian fast bowlers, during the Adelaide test match.

Ian Healy of the commentary team covering the match, pointed out that Morgan had never played more than grade cricket and wouldn’t have a clue as to what facing up to bowlers of this quality involved. Retired Australian paceman, Brett Lee then issued a challenge, which Morgan accepted.

After being hit in the head by a warm-up ball prior to the event, he was hit by Lee in the back, twice in the ribs, once in the wrist, fell over avoiding another, and was comprehensively bowled:

It is doubtful that many Australians realized who he was, other than just another Pom. He was introduced as the most watched talk show host in America, which would have CNN creaming its jeans, however such a claim is wildly inaccurate unless FNC is excluded from the survey.

Brett Lee said he'd done a "public service" by inflicting a bit of pain, stating “he got hurt but he didn't get maimed, so that's a positive step.”
