The England cricket team had a surprising visitor ahead of the third ODI against Sri Lanka at Kandy as a snake found its way to the practice facility when England were training.

The England and Wales Cricket Board’s (ECB) official twitter account posted a short 12-second video with caretakers trying get the snake in control.

On-lookers, quite a few of them, had their mobiles out to capture the moment.


England will take on Sri Lanka in the 3rd ODI at Kandy on Wednesday. England lead the five match series 1-0 with 31-run (DLS) win in the rain-curtailed 2nd ODI at Dambulla on Saturday.

The first match was abandoned with no result. After the five-match ODI series England are scheduled to play one T20I and three Tests.
