Yesterday, an incident happened during the ongoing second test between India and South Africa. Though it is the most common incident in recent times during a match, this arose some discussion among the public.
The pitch invader ran straight towards batsman Rohit Sharma and in his attempts to kiss his feet, he took the cricketer down with him, before he got taken away by the security guards.
Referring to the incident of a fan invading ground and trying to kiss Rohit Sharma’s feet, former Team India captain Sunil Gavaskar said, “These incidents happen because security people aren’t watching the crowd but the match.” “I say put the camera on the security and check whether they are watching the match or the crowd,” he added. Gavaskar fired on the officials that this kind of stunts definitely injures the players.
Twice, fans broke on to the field during India’s 2nd T20I against South Africa in Mohali. A similar thing happened during India’s 1st Test against the Proteas in Visakhapatnam. Now, on Day 3 of the 2nd Test between the two teams in Pune, a fan went past the security forces to run inside the stadium, just after the lunch break.
