image for Cricketer faces $20m lawsuit

England cricketer Butt Erfingers is facing a loss of earnings lawsuit from his team mates after he spilled a catch which cost the team 20 million dollars in earnings. The last ball of the match dollied up to him from the Unaffordable Allstars XI No 11 batsmen Rab Bit with his team one behind.

In the resulting confusion as the rest of the England team congratulated themselves on their impending millionaire status their opponents sneaked a couple of runs to win the game.

England captain Kevin Afrikaan said "It was just one of those things, anyone can drop a catch. We normally have a traditional fines system as a bit of fun and in this case old Butters will have to put 20M dollars into the kitty"
