Swarm of bees cause brief interruption in SL-SA World Cup match


Press Trust of India Chester-le-Street
The World Cup match between Sri Lanka and South Africa on Friday was halted for a brief period after a swarm of bees invaded the centre of the ground here.
Players and on-field umpires were forced to hit the ground to save themselves after a swarm of bees entered the field, but luckily none was stung by the insects.
The interruption occurred for about a minute in the 48th over of Sri Lanka's innings.
Incidentally, it is not the first occasion when bees played spoilsport during a match between the same two sides.
In 2017, the bees had halted the match at Wanderers Stadium when South Africa hosted Sri Lanka in Johannesburg.
