mass of cricket ball ~ 170g
top speed ~ 120km/hr
120km/hr ~ 33.333 m/sec

if you were 170 pounds (77.11kg),
m1v1 = m2v2
(.170)(33.333) = (77.11)(v)

this ball would have knocked your ass back at only 0.073 m/s
however, a pigeon (.4 kg) would have experienced a shift in its velocity equivalent to 31.1 mph.

in order for an average human beings (~170lbs) to experience such a velocity shift by a cricket ball, the ball would need to fly at 6425.8333 m/s.
that's a ball flying at 14,374 mph!

would a 14 kmph ball kill you?

Randy Johnson's was cooler. His was at least a 96mph fastball. AND the bird was on the endangered species list and he got fined. This guy just lobs it up there.

#5 Not going in to elaborated calculations - If u compare it to humans it would be like some dude doin a jaywalk and got hit in the head by a bowlingball passing thru the neighbourhood at 400 kmh or 250 mph? Or even much faster? :D

#5 i have no idea what that all means. except that a pigeon getting hit by a cricket ball equals numbers and stuff.

From the video angle, looks like he was aiming for the pigeon rather than the stumps!

:P I hope I have better luck than the pidgeon next time I hit the links. I've been hit by two errant golf balls, but thankfully never to the head.
