Virat Kohli Saves Pitch Invader From Security Personnel In Indore. Watch

Kohli’s kind gesture won hearts on the Internet. Here are some reactions.

The incidents of pitch invasion are on a rise in India. In most cases, the invaders cause embarrassment for the organisers, cricketers and often the viewers too. 

On Day Three of the second Test between India and South Africa in Pune, a fan had breached the security cover. 

Sunil Gavaskar, who was on the commentary duty at that time, raised concerns about the security of players after that incident.

“These incidents happen because security people are not watching the crowd but are watching the match. This has been the perennial problem in India. The security is not there to watch the match for free. They are there to stop such interruptions from happening,” Gavaskar had said.

“I say put the camera on the security and check whether they are watching the match or the crowd. This is a dangerous security issue which is what you are there for, to make sure no one goes into the ground. Anyone can cause damage to a player. It has happened in the past, why take a chance,” Gavaskar had added.

As far as the series in concerned, India crushed Bangladesh by an innings and 130 runs inside three days to take 1-0 lead in the two-match rubber on Saturday.

The second and final match is a day-night clash, with India hosting their first-ever pink-ball Test at Kolkata’s Eden Gardens from November 22.
