Cricket matches are long. Tests can take multiple days to finish, and even though the action is exciting, you need something to break up the monotony of the game, and what better way to do that than by letting an adorable stray dog run on the field.

A recent contest between the Delhi Daredevils and Rising Pune Supergiants was lucky enough to feature such entertainment, which was made even better by the Keystone Cops-style pursuit of the canine, which extended his presence right as a player had almost successfully lured the pup off the field.
