Ben Stokes and the strangest injuries in sport
From moster carps and coffee tables to exploding eggs and household pets, we run down some of the strangest injuries in sport
It was announced today that England all-rounder Ben Stokes will miss the World Twenty20 after suffering a rather bizarre injury.
Following his dismissal against West Indies earlier this week, he returned to the dressing room where he promptly punched a locker door.
It left him with a fractured hand, and ruled him out of this month's T20 tournament in Bangladesh.
Stokes might feel a fool for picking up such a stupid injury, but he's not the first sportsman to be hurt in strange circumstances.
