A game of Australian backyard cricket was spectacularly delayed on Christmas day just seven minutes after the first ball was bowled.

He uploaded the image to Reddit with the caption: ‘Seven minutes into Xmas cricket.’

In the pictures hundreds of bindis can be seen stuck in his green plastic flip-flops.

The hilarious image has attracted a number of comments.

‘When I see posts complaining about stepping on Lego, I remember running into patches of these f***ers with no shoes on,’ one person wrote.

‘Welcome to Australia. Even our grass sis out to get you,’ said another.
