Nicky Hayden to Jorge Lorenzo: 'pip, pip cheerio'

Despite growing up in England, I have no earthly idea as to how cricket works, so I can’t really be sure, but it looks like Nicky Hayden and Jorge Lorenzo suck at it. These photos were snapped as some sort of press thingy in the runup to this weeekend’s British Grand Prix at Silverstone. Think Nicky had to ask his daddy’s permission before playing?

    As someone who was dragged to Lord’s cricket ground as a child I can identify that shot Nicky is playing as a ‘slog’.

    Good thing the bowler didn’t pitch a googlie.

    According to
    “It was the Ducati Marlboro rider who appeared to get the hang of things quicker, hitting a few boundaries before taking tea and scones alongside Lorenzo.”

    The other riders must have sucked badly…

    Good thing those AirAsia flight attendants were there to serve the in-game tea. That was a wicked googly!

    Is that Bradley Smith as the bowler?

    I think I saw Nick on a “Save the Children” advert. My god, could he even lift the bat?
