Pretty sure this is a first. Mike Lane, pictured above getting his scrotum sliced, is a member of New Zealand's Alternative Commentary Collective. The collective does exactly what the name suggests: provides a different sort of broadcast experience for cricket fans. During the 2015 World Cup, for instance, they broadcast from an RV on the side of the pitch (until they lost accreditation because one of them walked onto the turf, a big no-no).

So, these guys do stunts, but this seems extremely, uh, extreme. During last weekend's match between New Zealand and Australia, Lane was equipped with one phone streaming a feed to the match, and another phone so that he could transmit his commentary. He was also accompanied by a camera person so that the whole thing could be streamed on Facebook Live. There was also a doctor separating his vas deferens from his testicles.

A representative bit of commentary:

[indecipherable cricket terminology and names] [modest chuckling at the the absurdity of the whole thing] [more indecipherable cricket terminology]..."and I can't feel my balls."

Bowling a googly? Snipping his goolies, more like!
