Quinton de Kock missed a stumping because of a bee. Strange, yet funny. It happened during the on-going final Test between South Africa and Australia.
The incident happened in the 30th over of the Australian innings which helped Shaun Marsh survive a scare. Though, he was soon dismissed for 16.
South African spinner Keshav Maharaj was the bowler. He bowled a flighted delivery, Marsh stepped down the wicket and missed it completely, giving a chance for De Kock to send him back. However, the wicket-keeper failed to collect the ball, which kept low, because a bee had stung his arm.

A game of cricket is mellow and not 'action packed' that even bees get a chance to sting players.Quinton De Kock stung by a bee.— KABELO MG (@KabeloMG) March 31, 2018

South Africa are already 2-1 in the series. With key Aussie players out of the final contest of the tour, it is expected that the Proteas will seal the series with ease.
