The huge animal appeared during the second innings and sent cricketers fleeing as it charged at them before turning his attention to the umpire.

The footage was captured on a mobile phone at the Kerridge Cricket Club, near Bollington in Cheshire as the side was taking on Mossley Cricket Club from Greater Manchester.

The bull can be seen charged at Kerridge captain Adam Banks before turning on the umpire and a fielder, who quickly dived out of its path.

Despite the players’ best efforts, the bull exited the field and headed along Clarke Lane towards the village.

Adam’s girlfriend Sarah Richmond, who is landlady of the Lord Clyde pub which sponsored the match, ushered punters inside the pub for safety.

But the bull jumped over a style into a nearby field where it is believed to have been captured.
