Hugh Jackman Plays Cricket, Gets Hit In Groin -- VIDEO

Hugh Jackman readies hit bat while playing cricket during day one of the Fourth Test match between Australia and England at Melbourne Cricket Ground on Sunday (December 26) in Melbourne, Australia.

While taping a TV segment for Channel 9′s Australian broadcast of The Ashes Test cricket series, the 42-year-old actor received a pitched from a fellow Aussie, pro cricket player Shane Warne. As luck would have it, the Wolverine star got hit in the groin!

Thankfully Hugh was wearing protective gear!

Two weeks ago, Hugh injured his eye while ziplining on the special Aussie episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show. Be more careful, Hugh!

    It seems like Hugh got hit more in the stomach than the groin. I wonder if he was just being funny. He’s too adorable.
