An Australian streaker has been fined and jailed for a week after running onto the field during the first day of the opening Test between Sri Lanka and Australia at Kandy’s Pallekele.

According to news.com.au, the naked ground invader was put behind bars for ‘indecent exposure’ and was also handed a fine of 3,000 Sri Lankan rupees for being intoxicated.

During a rain delay, the man ran towards the playing surface naked and slid along the covers brought on to protect the ground from rain.

Although he successfully evaded the tackle attempt by an armed police commando on the ground, he was arrested later.

Streaking at sporting events is considered as offensive in Sri Lanka, which is predominantly a country following Buddhism.
