A stray dog forced an early tea break in the second Test between India and England as Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara approached their centuries in Visakhapatnam.
The field erupted in laughter and applause as the four-legged cricket fan refused to leave the field, despite being chased by groundsmen.
He instantly became a Twitter trend within hours of halting the proceedings.
Twitter loved the action and the stray dog became trending news, with hilarious tweets about the incident.
One Twitter user made a keen observation:
Soon, the stray dog had a Twitter account on his name to manage the paparazzi:
The dog managed to take a dump in the middle of a cricket ground while being chased around. Clearly the performer of the day #INDvENG 🐶💩— Jaideep Vaidya (@jaideepjourno) November 17, 2016

#IndvsEng tea starts early due to a dog being on a pitch which suspends the rest of the session. I've seen it all in 2016.— Sway (@Swayam_93) November 17, 2016
