The ring finger on my left hand once looked like Nathan Hauritz’s finger, when the tip of it was smashed into 16 different fragments of bone by a cricket ball.

It hurt a lot, but we won the game. Hauritz’s finger could possibly be dislocated, however if it is broken then Australia’s best bowler (sic) is out of the rest of the Ashes. Perhaps they might fly Bryce McGain in as cover?

Speaking of broken fingers, this chap might be able to offer some advice:
