Third Umpire Gets Involved In Fans' Game Of Cricket During Rain Delay

How's this for an impromptu game of cricket?

A bunch of fans and kids started playing their own game of cricket on the grassy banks near Warner Park during one Caribbean Premier League match.

The game was in the middle of a rain delay, so the fans had little better to do.

Neither, apparently, did West Indies star Darren Sammy.

Or the third umpire, for that matter.

Sammy joined in the action and bowled - off one step - to one of the kids who was batting.

The kid blocked the ball and had to turn down a quick single from his batting partner, keen to get on strike.

His partner turned around as the throw came in to Sammy, who took off the bails and appealed to the umpire.

Sammy was confident but the umpire wasn't, so he waved to the big screen for help.

So the third umpire did!

Shortly after the screen lit up with the third umpire's decision, who gave it not out.

This is brilliant from Sammy, who posed for photos, and the third umpire!
