Game 2 of the Chappell-Hadlee Series was not a fun watch for any NZ Cricket fan.
The pain to the eyes of watching David Warner, Steve Smith and the Aussie batsmen destroy the kiwi bowling attack was only magnified by the Channel 9 commentary team's aural assault on the ears.

The only Blackcaps fans that would have enjoyed viewing that last night would probably be the folk who enjoy watching those torture porn movies like 'Saw' and 'Hostel'.
One comment by possibly the most punishing members of the commentary team was Ian Healy's "bowlers will wear helmets" call...
Yes, after watching Mitchell Marsh crush the ball back past the bowlers on numerous occasions, Healy then predicted that bowlers will have to wear helmets to protect themselves in the future.
Healy's comment didn't go unnoticed and the Twittersphere struck with furious vengeance.
Looking forward to Ian Healy designing a bowling helmet someone will wear for 25 overs in a test #AUSvNZ— Dale Foley (@dfoley33) December 6, 2016
@dfoley33 how many times have you seen a bowler get hit in the head. Ian Healy is an idiot— Adam Sinclair (@Sepoy20) December 6, 2016
