Cricket fans got more entertainment than they paid for after a brazen streaker bared all when he ran onto the pitch at a match.

The male streaker invaded the field during day two of the second trans-Tasman Test between New Zealand and Australia at the Hagley Oval in Christchurch at the weekend.

The naked frolicker gave several security guards the run around as he continued to avoid their attempted blockages.

Up to six security guards were seen chasing after the young nude man as they tried desperately to tackle him to the ground in front of the roaring crowd.

His cheeky pursuit was greeted by cheers and laughter while he galloped across the field before leaping over a barrier at the other end of the field as a young boy and his father copped an eyeful.

But his five seconds of fame came to an end when he was eventually tackled and placed into in a headlock before being escorted out of the ground by police officers.
