Hugh Jackman was left nursing a painful groin injury after a TV cricket stunt with Australian bowler Shane Warne on Sunday went wrong.
The Aussie actor turned out to watch his native country's team's battle with England in the latest test of The Ashes series in Melbourne and he went in to bat during a time-out TV segment with Warne.
But Jackman's pride at playing with his cricket hero soon turned to pain when one of Warne's bowls hit him in the groin. The X-Men star was seen doubled over, but was able to laugh off the incident in friendly banter with the sportsman.
Jackman said, "I didn't pick it,' while Warne cheekily replied, "Don't rub 'em, count 'em."
The actor is already nursing a bruised ego after crashing into a lighting rig when a zip-wire stunt for Oprah Winfrey's TV show went wrong earlier this month.
