IRELAND cricket star James McCollum was the victim of a hilarious prank as his side crashed to an embarrassing defeat to England at Lord's.
The batsman was oblivious as Tim Murtagh crept up behind him and yanked his trousers down in front of everyone.
An embarrassed McCollum was caught by TV cameras hastily tugging them back up after his fetching maroon boxers were displayed to the world.

But this didn't seem to dampen the team spirit in the squad as Murtagh made his teammate blush with the vintage practical joke.
