One in the eye for Christian as Notts captain takes trophy to the face
Dan Christian had much to celebrate after captaining Notts Outlaws to NatWest T20 Blast victory, but the Australian all-rounder got more than he bargained for at the trophy presentation.
Notts beat Hampshire and Birmingham Bears at Edgbaston on Saturday to add England's domestic 20-over title to the 50-over crown they claimed in July.
Yet Christian was briefly left reeling when he was presented with his team's hard-earned silverware, as the trophy was inadvertently lifted into his face.
Having been caught around his left eye, Christian was at least able to see the funny side.
He duly posted a selfie on Twitter, which showed him smiling broadly, accompanied by the caption: "That's why you play. Thanks to the presentation lady for the black eye!"

After a night of celebration, we suspect Christian may have a now sore head for more than one reason.
