West Indies are currently touring India. The ongoing game is the last Test match between the two—India won the previous one in Gujarat’s Rajkot.
An enthusiastic Indian fan breached security on the first day of India’s second Test against West Indies on Friday.
The fan entered the cricket ground and got himself a selfie with Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli. He was stopped just as he made to kiss the skipper. Security personnel came to Virat Kohli’s rescue as the man breached the security cordon at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad.

The play was stopped briefly when the fan jumped over the barricade and ran into the ground during the first session on Day 1 of the ongoing second Test between India and the West Indies.

The unruly fan was then whisked away by the security personnel. Nonetheless, the brief stoppage of play allowed the umpires and players take the drinks break on a hot morning in the South Indian city.

Vivek Mysore, Sports Reporter, Deccan Herald Film Critic, Deccan Herald tweeted saying we had seen it in the first Test and now it’s happened again. His tweet was directed to the fan who rushed to the ground to kiss Captain Kohli.

Despite the strong security arrangements, fans, over the years, have jumped past barricades and entered the ground to meet their idols. The likes of Sachin Tendulkar and MS Dhoni have also witnessed quite a few pitch invaders over the course of their celebrated careers.

During the 2nd ODI against Sri Lanka in Mohali last December, another man did exactly what he had set out to do, despite Dhoni’s best efforts to prevent him from touching his feet. He was then escorted out by a member of the security staff who rushed out to the middle.

In another unusual breach of security, a fan had run onto the field to kiss Sachin Tendulkar during a match in New Zealand.

Having won the first Test by a record margin of an innings and 272 runs, India will be hoping to complete a whitewash and head into the ODI series, starting 21st October, on a high.
