NEW ZEALAND and Zimbabwe A cricketers had to duck for cover when a swarm of bees invaded the field on the second day of their tour match in Harare, SkyNews reported.

The Black Caps were firmly in charge when the swarm descended onto the pitch, forcing the umpires to suspend play and wait for the bees to move on.

The bee invasion caused the players to drop to the ground, but New Zealand all-rounder Mitchell Santner says he did not understand all the fuss.

"A swarm of bees floated across in front of the sight screen there," Santner told the Black Caps website.

"They were quite far away so I don't know why everyone was on the ground, it was a bit weird."

Play did eventually get back under way and New Zealand ended the day with a 385-run lead after a four-wicket haul by leg spinner Ish Sodhi.
