This cup-splitting “nut shot” is a painful highlight to watch.

I don’t know much about cricket, but I do know that any time you are hit in your protective cup and it breaks that it is not a good thing. New Zealand cricketer Kane Williamson’s day took a horrible change for the worse when he takes a direct shot to the groin from the opposing teams pitcher (or whatever he is called). As Kane struggles to recover from this low blow, the camera catches a glimpse of his cup that is basically split into two pieces! According to the announcer it is a good thing when “the box breaks” assuming there is not pinching. I guess we will have to take his word on this…
