Players prostrated as bees visit Kotla

New Delhi:

In a rare scene on a cricket field, all players and umpires dropped to the ground as a swarm of bees visited Ferozeshah Kotla ground, causing the suspension of play for four minutes on the third day of the third Test between India and Australia.

As the bees were hovering around the ground just one over after the lunch, Sachin Tendulkar covered his ears with his hat while paceman Munaf Patel walked in with helmet in place.

Umpires Aleem Dar of Pakistan and Billy Bowden of New Zealand, who were also prostrate fearing bee stings, rose and asked everyone to stand up but Australian batsmen, skipper Ricky Ponting and Matthew Hayden continued to remain lying down.
