Alastair Cook does a Graeme Smith

The man with the mascara batted for Essex against the West Indies yesterday with a broken finger. He played for 2 hours and made 46 runs in that time.

With a broken finger. Why did he bother?

Apparently he looked to be in pain at times. Well, you would be. BECAUSE YOU PLAYED WITH A BROKEN FINGER, FOR FUCK'S SAKE.

"Look at me, all self-sacrificial and Jesus-like."

Its high time people considered making gloves with sufficient cushioning to protect the little finger.

We're well overdue for a pair of gloves that allow you to bat comfortably with broken fingers or whatnot. Everyone's doing it, it's all the rage.
