Watch: Cheeky monkey goes bananas during Sri Lanka's Test with India

Cricket Stumps

We've seen some great animal pitch invaders over the years, but this may top them all!

Cricket games can get interrupted for a load of different things, from rain, nasty injuries or a brave streaker sprinting across the pitch. 

What you don't usually see is a big ol' monkey running around the pitch like an absolute nutter, but that's exactly what happened on day three of Sri Lanka's test with India– it reminded us of watching James Milner play football.

The furry friend stormed the pitch at Galle, presumably to give Virat Kohli's side a hand after Dinesh Chandimal and Lahiru Thirimanne put on 125 to help give Sri Lanka a slim lead. 

This cheeky monkey may well be one of our favourite animal pitch invaders, thought nothing, NOTHING, will ever top the Anfield cat from a few years ago. 

I mean really, look at him move! I bet if Brendan Rodgers was in charge back then, we'd have seen the Anfield cat bombing it at left-wing-back...
