Animals running on to the field during a cricket match is no new phenomenon, but the same animal trending on Twitter, definitely is.

On Thursday, on the first day of the second test match between India and England at Vizag, a tea break was called under 'exceptional circumstances', after a stray dog ran on to the field.

Reports add that the dog refused to be robbed of its spotlight, and kept strutting around the field. 

Even volunteers who chased him around with their shoe could not do much, as the crowd cheered on.

Soon, 'Vizag Dog' started trending, as the match was being held at the ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium in Visakhapatnam.

A Twitter account was soon opened and hilarious tweets followed.

Meanwhile, riding on brilliant centuries by skipper Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara, India posted a commanding 317/4 against England by the end of the day's play.
