Players were shown punching and kicking each other to the ground following an argument claimed to have been over a single run.
Police are probing the footage, which was filmed during at Mote Park Cricket Club in Maidstone, Kent, on Sunday.

Shehzad Akram, who helped with the running of the event, said: “We tried our best for charity and these lunatics just spoiled it.
“At the end of the day, we were having the final match and it was the last couple of overs when some guys came on the pitch and attacked a few of the players.”
He added: “I told them then that what they’d done was a disgrace. There should be stiff action against the players involved.”
