A swarm of bees stopped play midway through Sri Lanka's innings in the third one-day international against South Africa in Johannesburg.

The bees disrupted play twice - sending players diving to the ground - before the game was officially stopped in the 27th over, with Sri Lanka on 117-4.

A groundsman used a fire extinguisher to try to disperse the bees, before a beekeeper was called to the Wanderers.

Play was able to restart an hour and five minutes later after the delay.(BBC)

    We should hold those bees in reserve to be released at matches when we are losing.

    Even the bees would have got angry at the way some SL batsmen batted.

    I THINK THE BEES ARE NOT HAPPY WITH THE COLOUR CHANGE OF THE SA CRICKET DRESS.
