Trust Us, This Is One Piers Morgan Video You Will Actually Want to Share With Friends

You're welcome.

Given CNN host Piers Morgan's unpopularity in the United States, there are likely a good number of Americans who would jump at the chance to throw cricket balls at him.

Brett Lee, a former Australian cricket player who once broke the 100mph barrier bowling a delivery, actually got the chance to do exactly that at the Melbourne Cricket Ground -- six times.

Morgan is in Australia for the fourth Ashes Test and has been talking trash about how bad the England squad is playing. It was his trash-talk that prompted Lee to challenge Morgan to an "over." Though he probably now regrets it (though he's not admitting it), Morgan accepted Lee's offer.

Morgan then proceeded to talk even more smack, this time directing it at Lee ahead of their match-up.

In the end, the TV host got whacked with three balls, bowled once, and fell over once. He claims his ego isn't bruised, however, he left with a cracked wrist, bruised rib, and massive egg on the back of his head. BuzzFeed reports the speed of the balls at around 90mph.
