Cricket commentator cringes as ball hits car

Cricket announcer Ian Smith was put in an odd position recently as he watched a moon shot from batsmen Jesse Ryder careen towards the parking lot and hit the top of his rental car.

After his initial burst of concern, Smith begins the denial phase, trying to convince himself that it is not actually his car that got the unwanted body work courtesy of the ball.
