Dog steals ball during Irish cricket match in viral video

Dog-gone it!

A pooch interrupted a women’s cricket match in Ireland on Saturday, stealing the ball while cracking up players and commentators.

The furry fan flew onto the field mid-play, swiping the ball as a player tried to field it in Saturday’s Women’s All-Ireland T20 Cup semi-final between Bready and Civil Service North.

“Oh! The dog has the ball!” a commentator says in a now-viral video clip before he and his colleague erupt into the laughter.

The dog, who escaped its owner with its leash on, runs across the field as players chase him.

A young man who appears to be the dog’s owner springs after the pup, who eventually stops near the wicket.

“I think we’ll retrieve the ball. It may need a clean,” the commentator quipped.
