Piers Morgan is considered to be a polarizing figure in the U.S. Morgan replaced Larry King on CNN in 2011. He has been very vocal over the years in his support of gun control in the U.S. and other liberal causes and candidates, and people either love him or hate him for that, depending on where they fall on the political spectrum. In early 2013, a petition to the White House for Morgan’s deportation received over 100,000 signatures, which was enough to warrant an official response from the President, who denied the petition citing the freedom of speech enshrined in the U.S. Constitution. Whether it’s his politics or his personality, it’s clear that there are plenty of people in the U.S. who don’t like Piers Morgan. Those people will likely enjoy this video of Morgan being pelted with a cricket ball. Fans of celebrities being knocked to the ground will also enjoy the video.
This video features Piers Morgan trying to hit a cricket ball against one of the fastest bowlers in the world of cricket, Australian Brett Lee. Though now retired, Lee consistently clocked his bowls at over 90 miles per hour, a speed similar to the fastballs of many pitchers in Major League Baseball. I can’t tell if Lee is just playing with Morgan in this video, but the raucous crowd thinks it’s hilarious. Lee keeps throwing the ball right at Morgan who takes one ball to the back and is knocked to the ground by another. Check it out below. Enjoy and ‘Share’
