A swarm of bees descended on the pitch as Sri Lanka was playing against South Africa in Johannesburg, South Africa. The game had to be stopped at the 27th over, when players dived down on the fields to protect themselves from the bees that were attacking for the second time. Sri Lanka’s innings in the third one-day international were at 115 in the 25th over, after losing their fourth wicket to the South African team.
