Cricket World Cup: A dust storm during Sri Lanka vs. Australia causes spectators to flee for their lives.

A dust storm disrupted Monday’s Sri Lanka vs. Australia Cricket World Cup play, sending spectators running for cover as flying debris crashed into stands.

During the match, a dust storm attacked the BRSABVE Cricket Stadium in Lucknow, northern India, ripping items from their fastenings, including advertising banners.

As the weather interrupted Sri Lanka’s innings, players were observed shielding their eyes.

Social media users shared videos of the debris falling from the roof and landing amid the seats, showing some spectators running for safety and others making a quick retreat back to the concourse.


Rain fell in between innings as both sides attempted to win the World Cup for the first time.


After reaching 125 without losing a wicket, Sri Lanka had a spectacular collapse and were bowled out for 209.

Due to rain hitting Lucknow before they could start their chase, Australia’s attempt to finally get off the ground following back-to-back losses to open the tournament was subsequently derailed.

Before Josh Inglis scored 58 and Glenn Maxwell (31) remained put to see them home with about 15 overs remaining, they made heavy weather of a modest total.
