Promising Queensland batsman Chris Lynn has been given the all clear after being taken to hospital following a horror blow to his genitals on Wednesday night.
The 22-year-old edged a Doug Bollinger delivery onto himself in the Bulls' 110-run Ryobi Cup win over New South Wales and had to be taken to hospital for scans following his dismissal for 39.
Lynn's swashbuckling knock contained one boundary and four massive sixes, and it helped rescue Queensland from a troublesome score of 4-109 when he entered the fray.
He showed incredible fortitude to bat on despite copping the thunderous strike to his nether regions, which had him doubled over on the pitch for an extended period of time.
When he arrived at the Mater Hospital, Lynn was pumped with painkillers and tweeted about his 'sore eggs' before returning to the Gabba to celebrate victory with his teammates.
"It wasn't a pretty sight," coach Darren Lehmann said of the moment Lynn returned to the rooms and assessed the damage.
"Hopefully he'll be right, he'll recover and get back playing some cricket as soon as possible.
"The doctor said take it easy for a few days, hopefully, and it'll all settle down.
"We think he's really going to be a good player for us for a long period of time so it's good to see him back like that and playing well.
"He was starting to get into some form so there's a big knock around the corner for him."
Although there were plenty of causes for concern for New South Wales, the Blues were also forced to rue a number of sundries during the emphatic loss.
The match broke the record for the amount of wides ever bowled in a domestic one-day fixture, with NSW conceding a whopping 26 off-target deliveries.
Lehmann said local knowledge of the weather helped Queensland prepare for the swing-friendly conditions.
"We knew it was going to swing because the humidity's in. But we didn't know there'd be that many," he said.
"We adjusted enough and played well. We wouldn't like it like that in future but you can't be too picky."
The Bulls' bowlers were on fire in the evening innings, knocking NSW over for just 142.
Alister McDermott and Matthew Gale each took three wickets while Cameron Gannon claimed two and the impressive Ben Cutting one.
"Our bowling was the best it's been all year. We got the wickets we needed and bowled them out," Lehmann said.
"They all did their job. Gale started poorly but fought back really well and got some crucial wickets. To finish off like that was outstanding.
"To bowl a side of that calibre out for 130 or 140 was outstanding.
"We knew it was going to be tough work but to get that result, it gets us back into the comp.
"We had a bad trot there. We didn't win one for five or six games.
"To actually get across the line and play like that, I'm very pleased for the lads. They worked very hard."
