Ever wanted to throw a cricket ball at Piers Morgan? Well, Brett Lee, who once broke the 100mph barrier bowling a delivery, got to do it six times at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Former Daily Mirror editor Morgan is in Australia for the fourth Ashes Test and has, predictably, been mouthing off (with some justification) about how useless England are with the bat. When Lee challenged Morgan to an over, he accepted it.

Although he is literally on his arse on one occasion, he doesn't fare too badly.
