Dog steals ball during cricket match [video]

WHAT’S BEING CLAIMED:

  • A dog tried to make a claim for MVP during a cricket match in Ireland.
  • The pup stole the show (and the ball) during the Women’s All-Ireland T20 Cup cricket semi-final match.
  • The dog ran onto the field and ran off with the ball, to the delight of the game’s announcer.

Move over, Air Bud! A dog stole the ball (and the show) during the Women’s All-Ireland T20 Cup cricket semi-final match.

Cameras caught footage of the canine, who darted out to the field and ran away with the ball.

“The dog has the ball,”  announcer Heatley Tector said in the footage before bursting into laughter.

Players chased the canine, and he eventually decided to relinquish the ball before his young owner ran up to retrieve him.

“I think we’ve retrieved the ball. It may need a clean. I think this has brought Covid regulations to a whole new standard,” Tector said facetiously.

The dog, named Dazzle, received an award for his tenacity. The International Cricket Council named him their honorary player of the month.
