Cricket is generally referred to as a gentlemen's game with a strong sportsman spirit. When two teams play against each other, there are some severe and light banters on the field. Everything's fine as long as it stays within the bounds of the rules, but then certain occurrences occur that disrupt the play environment and bring the game under scrutiny. One such event that has shaken the cricketing world is one that happened recently.
A brutal brawl broke out during a charity tournament in Kent, and it escalated into a significant conflict when the players were attacked. The bat-wielding attackers attacked the gamers out of nowhere, leaving everyone bewildered because they hadn't seen it coming. This is said to have happened at the end of Sunday's match at Mote Park Cricket Club in Maidstone.
The whole conflict was recorded by the camera and went viral on Twitter. The video shows a number of the players bickering on the ground before a bat-wielding man appears out of nowhere and into the scene. All of this occurred during a cricket match held to generate funds for struggling people in these trying times.
The cricket event was held to raise funds for the charity "Share for Care." According to KentOnline, it aims to support those in Pakistan who need medical treatment. One individual is seen on the floor while others start waving their bats in the video. The game was called off at the end, and some players were hurt.
The event's organiser, Shehzad Akram, reported that a few people entered and began attacking the players. He seemed to be implying that they were some mischief-makers who were causing the mayhem for no apparent cause. He went on to say that such behaviour is unacceptable and expressed his total displeasure with what occurred on the cricket field.
