Liam Livingstone has been a force to be reckoned with in the ongoing edition of the Big Bash League (BBL). The opening batsman has been one of the main reasons for the success of the Perth Scorchers in the league.
Yesterday, in a match against Melbourne Renegades at the Simonds Stadium, Livingstone scored a splendid half-century to take his team to a victory against the Aaron Finch-led side. But everything came crashing down when the ball smashed into his unmentionables and the batsman was left in pain. The bowler, Gleeson, checked upon him while giving a smile to the batsman.
The batsman still continued and took his team past the target of 175 to win the game.
After his dismissal, while interviewing the player on the sidelines, a journalist named Erin Holland asked one of the most hilarious questions of all-time that even made Livingstone crack up. She asked the player, “How are the crown jewels going now?” The batsman had a big smile on his face while answering the question and said that they are fine now.
“They are alright now. I wouldn’t advise getting hit in the same place twice,” added Livingstone.

How are the crown jewels going? 😂
