WATCH: A spectator steals the spotlight at The Lord's by wearing his raincoat the other way around; video goes viral


The ongoing Test match between England and New Zealand at The Lord's saw both teams go toe-to-toe with each other. As it happened, the Kiwis' might was greater than England's determination. The visitors stuck to their basics and channelised their aggression in the right manner. 

Despite losing big wickets like Kane Williamson, Ross Taylor, the Kiwis sailed the boat with heads high, thanks to the timely assistance of Devon Conway and Henry Nicholls. Both the batsmen ensured to take the team in the right direction with their useful knocks. 

While Devon Conway accomplished the biggest milestone of his cricketing career by scoring his maiden double century on Test debut at The Lord's, Henry Nicholls chipped in with 61. Conway decorated his marvellous innings with the help of 22 fours and a six while Nicholls hit 4 fours. 

Ollie Robinson, Mark Wood and James Anderson took 4, 3 and 2 wickets respectively. England's response was particularly not pleasing considering that they are playing at home. They managed to aggregate 275 in the first innings, courtesy opener Rory Burns roared with 132 (16 fours, 1 six).

Man steals the spotlight at The Lord's

During the second innings of Kiwis' batting, when the visitors lost 5 wickets, the cameraman was focusing particularly on one person at the stands. Seemingly, the spectator was only trying to wear his yellow raincoat but little did he know that he was wearing it the other way around.

As it happened, the man suddenly realized that he wore it quite the opposite way and he decided to pull it off quickly. Meanwhile, the fans hilariously made noise as the cameraman still zoomed in on the person. The man eventually wore this raincoat as the crowd cheered him up. 

It was quite a hilarious incident and the audience absolutely loved it. The video clip has spread like wildfire on social media platforms. Meanwhile, Kiwis scored 169/6 and then declared the innings. The match has come to the final day and England have survived the Kiwis' dominance. 

At the time of writing this article, the hosts required 123 runs to win in 12 overs. With 7 wickets in hand, the hosts should look to play out a draw rather than losing wickets by playing shots.
