Amidst chaotic scenes play was suspended for 15 minutes (23 minutes into the
game) because for the third tour match in a row Tear Gas was used by police to
stop locked out fans from gaining entry into the stadium. The tear gas spread
into the ground and forced those inside to break down fences in order to escape
the stinging gas. A policeman was later arrested for causing the chaos by
prematurely releasing the gas canister.
