The cricket match between India A and England Lions was halted because of an attack by bees. Due to the invasion, there was no play for 15 minutes.

None of the players, match officials and support staff were injured but five fans were taken to hospital for medical care. This incident took place in the 28th over of the England Lions innings when a group of five people threw something at the beehive that led to the attack giving little time to the victims to hide somewhere.

Rahul Dravid had to get back to the dugout, while the players protected themselves by bending downwards and waited around the pitch to let the swarm clear out. The India A team is leading 4-0 against the England Lions in the five-match series.

Chasing 222 to win, the home side successfully chased the target in 46.3 overs and won the game by six wickets.
