In a bizarre incident, a man drove his car onto the pitch during the Ranji Trophy match between Delhi and Uttar Pradesh at the Air Force ground in Palam on Friday afternoon.

The man, who identified himself as Girish Sharma, claimed that he had lost his way, and since there was no security at the entrance, he drove his vehicle, a Maruti Wagon R, onto the ground.

The incident occurred at 4.40 pm, 20 minutes from the close of play. The unexpected entry of the vehicle startled both the players and umpires. As Sharma tried to drive away, he was caught by security officials and handed over to the Air Force Police.

A number of international players like Gautam Gambhir, Suresh Raina and Ishant Sharma were in action in the match when this incident happened.

Suresh Raina, Ishant Sharma and other cricket lovers reacted on Twitter after the man drove his car on the pitch.
