The crocodile sneaked into the Humani lodge and spent the entire night lying under the bed quietly. On Tuesday morning, the 40-year-old former all-rounder failed to notice it till the morning.

He came to know about it only after his housemaid screamed in the morning. Whittall was stunned to find the crocodile nestled under his bed.

Whittall later called his co-workers who helped in removing the crocodile from the bedroom. The reptile crocodile was released back in Humani's Chigwidi dam.
