A Ranji Trophy match was delayed due to a visit from a local reptile.
As Ranji teams of Andhra Pradesh and Vidarbha were about to make their way to the middle, the Vijayawada ground had a cute, little and hopefully non-venomous visitor. The match was even delayed by a few minutes due to this visit.
This is not the first time a Ranji Trophy match has been stopped due to uninvited guests. In 2017, a man drove his car into the middle of the pitch during a Ranji match between Delhi and Uttar Pradesh
The BCCI Domestic handle posted a video where the snake can be seen gliding on the field while seven to eight groundsmen trying to ensure that it slithers away.
