Mick Jagger’s nephew smashes team-mate’s car windscreen with a six

THE captain of Crazies Hill Cricket Club had his car’s windscreen smashed by a ball hit for six — by Mick Jagger’s nephew.

Ian Stuart, 64, had retired from batting during his team’s match at local rivals Hurley on Sunday with only three overs left so Rob Jagger could have a go.

Mr Jagger, a former team-mate who was visiting from Somerset, then smashed a ball over the pavilion and into Mr Stuart’s blue BMW X5. Mr Stuart, from Upper Culham, said: “I was quite surprised because the car was tucked into quite a tight location.

“I said to Rob ‘you had better come out and look at what you’ve done’. He was quite perturbed by it and was very apologetic.

“I had been conscious that he wasn’t going to get a bat so I retired and the way he repaid me was to smash my car’s windscreen!” Mr Stuart said his insurance would cover the damage and he had the windscreen repaired in Reading on Wednesday.

Mr Jagger, whose father Chris Jagger is the brother of the Rolling Stones frontman, was 10 not out at the end of the match, which ended in victory for the visitors.

He used to play for Crazies Hill for about five years before moving away. Two weeks ago, the Henley Standard reported on a similar fate suffered by Matt Hampton, the captain of Hurley Cricket Club, during a friendly match with Fiddlers at the same Shepherds Lane ground.

He hit a huge six over the pavilion and shattered the windscreen of his own BMW in the process.

Mr Hampton, who was on his way to making 29 runs, said: “It was a good, clean connection but if I had hit the same shot 100 times I would not get the same angle.”

He had to have the car repaired ready for his family holiday to France at 4am the next day.
