Oh. A cricket commentator just had an unfortunate wardrobe malfunction live on camera.

Many people are familiar with the nightmare that you’re suddenly stark naked in front of a crowd of people.

You’re giving a speech, only to look down and realise you’ve forgotten your pants. Whoops!

But for South African cricket legend Shaun Pollock it was… not a dream.

The former cricketer was demonstrating a slip catch on day three of the Boxing Day Test at Centurion, when he had a very awkward wardrobe malfunction.

In the video, you can see the 45-year-old seamlessly pick up the ball before you hear him say “That’s a split”.


He continues to turn around to showcase the split pants to precisely… everybody watching at home.

He handled it like a total champ, even taking to Twitter to acknowledge the incident.

“Thanks to the Proteas change room for the replacement pants , no more slip catching displays in suit pants!” he wrote in the tweet, alongside a photo of him in some sparkly new slacks.

Somebody buy this guy a beer.
