Sunday League Batsman Hits Six And Smashes His Own Windscreen
Sunday League batsman Asif Ali has gone viral after the Illingworth St Mary's player hit a huge six into his own car and smashed the windscreen.
Amateur sport always brings lots of laughs, think of the amount of Sunday League football games that bring up incredible fails, as everyday people try to emulate the stars of their favourite sport.
On Sunday, cricketer Asif Ali had a moment of personal success that was soon met with equal parts personal suffering, as he smacked a six straight into his car.
Ali was playing for St Mary's in the Halifax Cricket League Crossley Shield quarter-final against Sowerby St Peter's when he smacked a ball right over the boundary and into the windscreen of his Vauxhall Zafira.
You need to turn the sound on to hear the noise when the ball goes through the glass and Ali's reaction is incredible to watch.

Whilst the batsman initially looked as if he was as shattered by the moment as his windscreen, he could at least laugh at it.
After the match he told the Yorkshire Evening Post that he was "devastated afterwards, but could see the funny side of it all."
He also revealed that a member of the crowd had responded to the moment by shouting, "Asif, please can we have your keys so that we can open your car and get the ball back?" you'd have to laugh at that!
Amazingly the club's shirt sponsor are actually Fix Auto Bradford South who do body repair and collision repair and said they "might be able to help him out," out of all the collisions they've sorted this might be one of the more original.
Ali's suffering might have brought him instant success with the six but overall it didn't actually help his side, who went down to a seven wicket loss.
The batsman might be able to take some solace in the fact he didn't actually have the worst weekend in Sunday League cricket.
Buckden Cricket Club 2nd XI took on Falcon on Sunday and, after watching the opposition rack up 260-6 in their 40 overs, they could only muster a score of two all out!

Amazingly every single Bucken batsman was out for a duck, with the side's two runs coming from one bye and one extra!
