Want to be a professional cricketer?
Watching sports is fun, be it on field or be it on tv. Weekends and a great match – Oh So Good ! The matches that we get to see relaxing on the couch has lots of people’s hard work involved behind the camera, including the camerman. But sometimes their involvement in the game increases to such a level that they make a close encounter with them.
Here are top five videos where the cameraman or reporters make such interesting up-close and personal appearances that they become even more interesting than the game itself.
5. A close encounter with Wimbledon
It was Serena who lost her match at Wimbledon. But the BBC cameraman Colin also lost something essential, his balance. Watch he gets a clearer view of the ‘always green’ grass at Wimbledon.
Don’t miss Elena Vesnina’s expressions as she signs autographs nearby:
4. When segways don’t make way
Segway, a brilliant invention of science that makes media go smooth. But what if a helmet comes in your way? You simply see ( read : make viewers see) the earth from a different point of view.

3. Wrestling all the way
In a sport where physical strength is involved, like wrestling, the heat is always on. Players lose temperament, things go worst and all sorts of unpleasant things possible. But how often do you see the camera guy fall victim? We have such a recorded occcasion.
God bless you, video buddy!
2. Keeping it down to earth
Another segway fail made its way as former Australian skipper Ian Healy fall off a segway while reporting from the Oval. Though he didn’t move too far, quite a mentionable amount of grass were uprooted making holes which he tried to fill regaining his balance. ‘ The grass is really soft’, the sportsman later joked.

1. The uninvited
You’re doing your work with enormous attention and suddenly you get hit and guess what? You wake up in a hospital. Something almost similar to this happened to the Bundesliga match between Hoffenheim and Mainz 05 match. The Hoffenheim captain Andreas Beck, in order to keep the ball in play, made his way through the touch line to the camera guy who had no clue about how hard is he going to be hit the next moment.
