A man’s near-successful attempt to escape the clutches of the law, after streaking across Dunedin’s University Oval during the Black Caps’ T20 match against Australia, has been captured on film by fellow cricket fans. During Australia’s unsuccessful chase of New Zealand’s total of 219/7, and amongst a sell-out crowd packed full of students celebrating the start of the first semester of university in the city, the man decided to join the ranks of previous Dunedin-based sporting streakers – and almost got away with it.
Magnificent effort by this streaker in Dunedin! pic.twitter.com/i3NskxsepG
