The dog entered the field during the match between Rising Pune Supergiants and Delhi Daredevils in the western Indian city of Visakhapatnam. It walked in to the pitch soon after the start of the second innings, sitting besides fielder Rishabh Pant and wagging its tail.

His teammate Chris Morris tried to lead the pooch towards the boundary, but it was clearly enjoying itself. The dog then sent the ground staff scurrying all over the stadium in a fast-paced chase, before finally exiting.
