A fan breached security, hugged Virat Kohli, touched the cricketer’s feet, and caused a brief pause in the game as he invaded the pitch while Kohli was fielding near the boundary line.

Virat Kohli, returning to the shortest format after a 14-month hiatus, commanded all attention as India faced Afghanistan in the second T20I at Holkar Stadium in Indore. However, an enthusiastic Kohli fan disrupted the match, breaching security to embrace and touch the feet of his favorite player during the 18th over of Afghanistan’s innings, while Kohli fielded near the boundary line.

Although the incident wasn’t televised live, it temporarily paused the game until security personnel removed the fan from the field, ensuring a swift resolution.

The individual was detained for breaching security protocols and was subsequently taken to the Tukoganj police station. According to a police official, the young man, who possessed a valid match ticket, entered Holkar Stadium through the Narendra Hirwani Gate. A passionate Kohli fan, he found a way around the spectators’ gallery fence to meet the player. The youth is currently undergoing interrogation, and subsequent actions in the case will be determined based on the outcome of the investigation.

On the match front, India secured a decisive 2-0 lead in the three-game series against Afghanistan with a six-wicket victory in the second T20I. Expressing satisfaction, captain Rohit Sharma highlighted the team’s commitment to their game plan, stating that the players are effectively translating discussions into actions.
