New Delhi: In a bizarre incident during a live international cricket match, the second T20I between India and South Africa came to a halt as a snake entered the Barsapara Stadium in Guwahati.
The incident took place when India had completed the seventh over of its innings and several players on the fielding side noticed the snake crawling on the green grass of the ground and approaching the pitch.
Initially, South Africa all-rounder Wayne Parnell spotted the snake and later Quinton de Kock and KL Rahul were seen baffled by it while chatting with each other. As the match came to a stop, the groundstaff intervened and took the snake out of the field with help of sticks and a bucket.
A twitter user named Prateek Pratap Singh shared the clip with caption, “Snake also reached to watch the cricket match of India and South Africa at the stadium in Guwahati”.
