Sri Lanka vs England: Ground Security Hunts Down Streaker In A Funny Chase At Galle

In cricket, the incidents of streaking have been reported on a number of occasions.

The first incident of streaking took place during a 1975 Test match between England and Australia at the Lord's. A streaker called Michael Angelow, who gained celebrity status, invaded the cricket pitch and leaped over the stumps.

As far as the match is concerned, England secured a first-innings lead of 139 thanks to a century on debut by the man of the match Ben Foakes.

In England's second innings an assured unbeaten 146 by Keaton Jennings, his first century since a ton on his 2016 debut that has silenced his critics for now at least, allowed Root to declare at 322 for six.

The hosts, chasing a notional 462 victory in the first match of a three-Test series, could only muster 250 on day four, with Jack Leach taking three wickets to go with Moeen Ali's four, with Adil Rashid and Ben Stokes getting one each.
