NSW Police arrested four men on Wednesday over the alleged kidnap and assault of former international cricketer Stuart MacGill.

It's alleged Mr MacGill was confronted in Cremorne by the brother of his partner on April 14 before being forced into a vehicle and driven more than 60 kilometres to a property, where three men allegedly assaulted him and threatened him with a firearm.

He was dumped by his alleged kidnappers later in Belmore. Six days later, the incident was reported to police, who have charged the men for their alleged crimes.

Today on Please Explain, Nathanael Cooper is joined by crime reporter Fergus Hunter to find out more about this bizarre series of events.
