Heath Davis looks on the bright side

Former Wellington and New Zealand fast bowler Heath Davis has lost half his foot but not his sense of humour

Former Wellington and New Zealand fast bowler Heath Davis has lost half his foot but not his sense of humour. Davis suffered a horrific workplace accident in Brisbane, but as he told the Dominion Post, he's joked to close friends that he got so sick of bowling no-balls he decided to do something permanent about it.

"I can build up to a jog, that is about the height of it and I can still roll my arm over off four paces. Everything is swinging in though when I bowl because it is hard to complete the [bowling] action."
