[Watch] Why This Canine Won ‘ICC Dog Of The Month Special Award’

New Delhi: True to his name ‘Dazzle,’ this furry doggo has really managed to woo spectators and the International Cricket Council (ICC) alike.

On Monday, when ICC announced men’s and women’s Player of the Month for August, everyone was surprised at the inclusion of a dog that had hilariously invaded the pitch during a women’s domestic T20 match in Ireland.

The apex body posted a picture of the dog on Twitter with the ‘ICC Dog of the Month | Special award’ added on it. They also mentioned the dog as ‘the best fielder in Ireland cricket’.

“We have an additional Player of the Month winner this time,” wrote ICC on Twitter after the video of Dazzle invading the pitch went viral.


Dazzle shot to fame when it was seen running around the field, forcing his owner to chase it around during the semi-final clash in All-Ireland T20 Women’s Cup between Bready and CSN on Saturday (September 11).

What is more, the furry canine also got hold of the ball during the process and kept it in between his jaws before it finally stopped after being embraced with a pat at the non-striker’s end.

Needless to say, it left everyone present at the scene in splits, including the commentators, who lauded the efforts of the dog.
