NEW YORK - Hollywood actor Hugh Jackman was left nursing a painful groin injury after a TV cricket stunt with Australian bowler Shane Warne Sunday went wrong.
The Australian actor turned out to watch his native country’s team’s battle with England in the Melbourne Test match of the Ashes series.
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 balls hit him in the groin, reports contactmusic.com.
The “X-Men” star was later able to laugh off the incident in a friendly banter with the Australian sportsman.
“I didn’t pick it,” he said, while Warne cheekily replied: “Don’t rub ‘em, count ‘em.”
