London, May 26(ANI): A cricket match between Oswestry CC and Whitchurch CC in England descended into chaos when an umpire allegedly headbutted a player during an argument.
According to reports, the umpire gave a batsman “not out” and had a heated row with a fielder, who was convinced that the official had made a mistake.
Later, things turned ugly as players from both the sides piled into each other.
“I couldn’t believe what was going on. I have never seen anything like that on a cricket pitch in my life,” The Mirror quoted one of the players, as saying.
The club game reportedly had no neutral umpires so was being officiated by players from the batting side.
The situation only got under control only when local police intervened to part the warring teams.
The game was abandoned. (ANI)
