The Cricket World Cup got off to fleshy start when players and fans of New Zealand and Sri Lanka were treated to an impromptu streaker.

In a game that New Zealand won comfortably, one of the talking points was the brief interruption at the Hagley Oval as the streaker put on his own show.

The pursuit by stewards was greeted by cheers and laughter as he was chased around the ground.
