West Indies League cricket match cancelled due to cows damaging field

West Indies League cricket match cancelled due to cows damaging field

In a bizarre turn of events during a cricket match between Trinidad & Tobago and Guyana in the Caribbean, part of the field was damaged, leading to the cancellation of one day's play.

According to the Caribbean Cricket Podcast, the unusual disruption occurred as cows entered the pitch overnight and trampled a section of the field.

While the authenticity of the news remains unverified, such incidents are rare and add to the list of peculiar disruptions witnessed in cricket matches.

This peculiar occurrence follows a trend of unexpected disruptions in cricket matches. In a recent incident in the Lanka Premier League, a snake halted a game, while in 2022, a similar incident occurred at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati during a match between India and South Africa.

West Indies cricket has also made headlines recently, notably with injured pace bowler Shamar Joseph delivering an exceptional spell of fast bowling. Joseph played a crucial role in guiding the West Indies to a historic upset against Australia, winning the match by eight runs in Brisbane.

Despite fielding an under-strength side for the Test series in Australia, the West Indies handed debuts to four players, including Joseph, in the two Tests. After facing a defeat in Adelaide, expectations were low for the day-night Test in Brisbane. However, the West Indies surprised cricket enthusiasts by bowling out the hosts for 207 in the second session, securing their first victory in Australia since 1997.

West Indies captain Kraigg Brathwaite expressed the significance of the win, especially given the challenges faced with a young and relatively inexperienced team. He mentioned playing against the number one team in the world in Australia and credited the team's belief and determination for the remarkable achievement.

Shamar Joseph, despite struggling with foot pain, delivered an outstanding performance, claiming 7-68 in just his second Test. Joseph's commitment to staying on the field and contributing to the team's success highlighted the importance of the win for West Indies cricket.

"It shows that once we have the belief and the heart, we can do anything," remarked Kraigg Brathwaite, expressing the emotional significance of the victory for the West Indies team.
