Swarm of bees stop play as South Africa and Sri Lanka players hit the deck to avoid invasion


PLAY in the Cricket World Cup contest between Sri Lanka and South Africa was stopped due to BEES on Friday.

Players from both sides joined the umpire in lying on the floor as the flying insects buzzed overhead.

The stoppage came in the final overs of Sri Lanka’s innings at Durham’s Chester-le-Street ground.

But the extra rest couldn’t help the batsmen as they were bowled out for just 203 with three balls left spare.
