A faulty spider cam got stuck near the pitch which caused the on-field umpires to call for an early tea break.
On the third day of the second test match between India and New Zealand at the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai, a hilarious incident took place in the field.
An early tea break took place when Ravichandran Ashwin trapped the Kiwi skipper Tom Latham in front of the stumps on the final ball of the fourth over. NZ were struggling at 13/1 at tea on Day 3.
The hilarious incident took place in the fourth over of the final innings of play. A Spidercam got struck in the mid-wicket region and was unable to move. Several Indian players were seen gathering around it and having some fun with the camera.
Ravichandran Ashwin, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Mohammad Siraj and many other players were seen having some fun with the Spidercam.
The Spidercam has halted the game multiple times in the past. The Spidercam is now used in almost every other format of the game to provide different angles during the livestream.
Chasing the mammoth target of 540, the Kiwis ran into trouble from the start. Skipper Tom Latham was the first to depart. Daryl Mitchell who replaced Kane Williamson for the second test joined Will Young in the crease after the skipper’s dismissal.
