Crowd trouble during third match between India and Sri Lanka on Monday had forced the umpires to stop play for about 35 minutes when India were cruising to a series clinching victory.
India were 210 for four after 44 overs, needing another eight runs to win, when players were sent back into the dressing room, following the rowdy behaviour from Sri Lankan supporters, who resorted to throwing bottles into the field of play.
Security forces were called to clear the spectators from some of the sections in the gallery before the match resumed.
However, what stole the show during the entire episode was former Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s nap on the ground.
Twitter had a field day on Tuesday with thousands tweeting photos of Dhoni sleeping on the ground while the game was stopped due to interventions from the audience.
The scenes were reminiscent of 1996 World Cup semifinals at the Eden Gardens where India had to forefeit the match against Sri Lanka following crowd trouble.
Rohit Sharma was batting on 122 and M S Dhoni on 61 when play was halted.
