Funniest cricket video you’ll ever see

IF laughter really is the best medicine then this video should cure that New Year's Day hangover right up.

You might think there are few better sights in cricket than a Virat Kohli cover drive or Mitchell Starc inswinging yorker but a one minute and 46-second compilation of seriously funny slip-ups has both of those guys covered.

The good folk at Cricket District created a montage out of clips from That's So Village to ensure 2020 got off to the best possible start as they blessed the internet with a round-up of scenes so bad they're good.

The video got some love on social media from former cricketers like Dean Jones, David Lloyd and Matt Prior and it's easy to see why.
