On the cricket field where the Irish domestic women’s game was played between CSNI and Bready, a funny incident happened recently.
In the hilarious incident, a cricket match got momentarily interrupted when a dog entered the match field, picked up the ball, and ran around the field catching the onlookers off-guard. It took the ball and sprinted around the ground.
The incident took place during the 9th over of CSNI’s innings. During the match when batter Abbi Leckey dabbed the ball just behind the keeper, the fielder at short third-mad rand towards the ball square on the offside, picked the ball, turned around, and threw it back to the wicketkeeper. As soon as she threw the ball, the camera caught the first glimpse of the dog.
Wicketkeeper Rachel Hepburn collected the ball and had shy at stumps, only to miss it. It is when the dog with leash decided to show a glimpse of its fielding. It picked the ball and ran in all its might as the incident triggered laughs and smiles from everyone involving the players and commentators.
Just then, a spectator (possibly the dog owner) chased the dog. Soon enough, the dog jaywalked towards the batter at the non-striker’s end, where it received strokes from Aoife Fisher and it finally let go of the ball.
The hilarious video is posted on Ireland Women’s Cricket on Twitter.
