World Cup final: Eoin Morgan determined to seize 'huge opportunity' for England

A pitch invader was stopped from entering the field of play in the World Cup 2019 final at Lord’s between England and New Zealand.

YouTube prankster Vitaly Zdorovetskiy’s girlfriend made headlines with her pitch invasion during the Champions League final, and now his mum has attempted to do the same in the cricket.

Wearing clothing that contained the words “Vitaly Uncensored”, the pitch invader was stopped from entering the field of play by stewards after she ran over the barrier in front of the stands.

Wolanksi’s stunt in the Champions League final was said to be worth £3.8m in advertising the Russian-American company Vitaly.

Vitaly tweeted: ”My mom just tried to Streak The Cricket World Cup,” and added: “My mom is crazy!!!!!” in a separate Tweet.

Wolanski added: “MOST BAD A** MOM EVER”

2015 beaten finalists New Zealand chose to bat after winning the toss and brought up 100 in the 22nd over.
