The ongoing ICC World Cup is full of unexpected surprises and turns as the month and a half long cricket carnival has experienced a range of events throughout so far. However, during the recent match between England and New Zealand, a rather bizarre incident took place at Durham.
The incident occurred in the 33rd over of New Zealand innings when a streaker wearing nothing but a green hat ran onto the field and provided around five minutes of entertainment that had a packed crowd roaring with laughter.
It took almost 30 seconds before security reacted to him being on the field and even then there seemed a lack of urgency to do anything about the situation. The man lured the security guards three times before running away. He was later held by security personnel at the ground before play could finally resume.
