A giant eight-foot-long Afghan cricket fan was caught by his height and refused access to hotels in India where the locals came to him.
Sher Khan pitched for Afghanistan against the West Indies in Lucknow, in the north of the country, but finding a room turned out to be quite a challenge.
Hoteliers were stunned by his height of 2 meters and blocked him from entering, so Khan trudged to the nearest police station on Tuesday evening to appeal.
The locals were defeated by the colossus brought by a police escort to the Hotel Rajdhani, with hundreds of people catching a glimpse of Khan.

& # 39; No fewer than 200 people have come to visit him. He is very disturbed, & # 39; the owner of the hotel told ANI.
The rising crowd continued the next day and Khan was brought to Ekana Stadium by a police guard on Wednesday for the first ODI, NDTV reported.
Khan, from Kabul, who remains in the city for another four days, saw how his side was battered by the West Indies.

The tallest man in the world towers at 3 ft
Sultan Kosen, a 36-year-old from Turkey, stands at 8ft 3in, making him the tallest man on the planet.
According to the Guinness World Records, Kosen is the first person in more than ten years to measure more than 8 ft and is one of only 10 confirmed cases in history.
More than 6ft between them: Kosen, 35, from Turkey, stands at 8ft 3in, while Amge, 24, the smallest woman in the world from India measures just over 2ft in length
Although he is the tallest man in the world, his family members are all of average size.
Kosen was also normal in height until his growth spurt when he was 10 years old.
Its huge size is the result of a condition known as & # 39; pituitary giantism & # 39 ;, which is caused by an overproduction of growth hormone.
Kosen, who was unable to attend school because of his size, worked as a farmer to support his family.
In 2016, he traveled to Hollywood for his lead role in the film Achieving the Impossible.
It was also revealed at the time that he accepted an offer to work on a second film that was photographing in Australia.
