An extra man on the field

Highlight Story

South African opener Hashim Amla marked his guard and was ready for the first ball from Dutch pacer Mudassar Bukhari, who was about to run in from the top of his bowling mark when English umpire Richard Kettleborough noticed an extra man on the field during the World Cup match at the Punjab Cricket Association Stadium (PCA) at Mohali Thursday.

When Kettleborough was about to say "play," he found a TV cameraman on the square, focussing on a close-up of the non-striker, and quickly told the intruder to leave the field.

"I have been covering cricket for a long time and I have never seen a thing like this. It's strange and funny," remarked a South African scribe in the media box.
