That's One Way To Throw A Match
Leave it to the Indians to find new ways to abandon a sporting event. Monkeys riding elephants and chasing tigers onto the pitch, a Muslim-Hindu battle royale or simply landing a helicopter in the middle of a cricket match.
A helicopter sent players and officials running for cover after it landed in the middle of a cricket game. The piloit mistook a painted "H" in the corner of the field for a target. He also thought a nearby fire were smoke signals intended for him.
The game was continued after 30 minutes which gave the home team time to cork their cricket bats, take a tea break or do whatever it is you do during breaks.
