Plenty happened at Ferozshah Kotla during the third cricket Test match between India and Australia:
Double centuries by Laxman and Gambhir, Gambhir's suspension after the elbow
gate, five wickets for Sehwag, Anil Kumble announcing his retirement. But there
was something else too which may as well be worth remembering Bees Saal Baad: on the third day
of the match, a swarm of bees invaded the playing arena in the post-lunch session. The Indian fielders and the Australian batsmen hit the ground, but the maverick New Zealand umpire Billy Bowden was quick to get up and even quicker to hit the ground once again.
