A case was filed Friday against a man belonging to Kadapa District of Andhra Pradesh for allegedly breaching security cordon at the Uppal Stadium where the second cricket test match between India and West Indies is being played.
Invading the pitch has been a common sight in the ongoing India vs West Indies Test series. After two fans tried to click selfie during the Rajkot Test, now a Virat Kohli fan invaded the pitch and tried to kiss him on the cheek.
The Indian skipper did not say much to the fan and let the authorities do their work. But, then the invader tried to plant a kiss on his cheek forcing Kohli to push him away.
Virat looked visibly upset by the fan’s action. As the security dragged the invader out of the ground, the crowd roared and clapped. The on-field umpires even called for drinks after the halt in Day 1’s play.
Police inspector P Venkateswarlu said a case of trespassing was slapped against 19-year-old Mohammad Khan, who breached security cordon to get up close with Virat Kohli.
It happened an hour into the morning session when he climbed the barricade and sprinted around 70 metres towards Kohli before engaging in a tight hug and then trying to take a selfie with the skipper.
