Photo of the Day-Australian cricketer flattens streaker

Symonds stood his ground and leaned into the streaker in a rugby-style hit, dropping him instantly to the ground in the 10th over of Australia's reply.

The streaker was escorted from the field by police. He faces a fine up to 3,000 Australian dollars for the pitch invasion and is expected to be charged with willful exposure by Queensland state police....

Symonds could face a serious punishment if the International Cricket Council decides that he breached section 4.2 of the player's code of conduct relating to a physical assault of a rival player, an official or a spectator.

The sanction for that is a suspension from five test matches or 10 limited-overs internationals up to a life ban.
