Hugh Jackman Nailed in Crotch by Cricket Ball

Hugh Jackman found himself in harm’s way for the second time this month, this time because a cricket pitch – televised in his native country of Australia – went south for a direct hit in the Wolverine star’s groin.

Known as one of the best bowlers ever to grace the sport, cricket great Shane Warner was the man who chucked the ball at Jackman during a commercial break. Afterward, the all-star remarked to the ailing actor, “Don’t rub ‘em, count ‘em.”

Check out the near-wounding below:

And in case you missed it, or in case you just want to see more acts of random bodily harm, watch Hugh crash into a light fixture on Oprah earlier this month:
