Police file case against fan who tried to click selfie with Virat Kohli during Hyderabad Test
The Hyderabad Police have filed a case against fan who breached security and entered the field to meet Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli and click a selfie with him. The incident involving the 19-year-old fan Mohammad Khan, which occured on the first day of the second test match against the West Indies saw Virat Kohli get angry with the officials on the sidelines during the drinks break because of the issue.
The fan ran across the field at the end to hug Virat but the cricketer was seen avoiding the hug before the officials came to take Mohammad away. From Kadapa district, he has been booked for trespassing on the field while the game was on. Occurring at the end of the 15th over, the incident delayed proceedings to a great extent as Ravichandran Ashwin was getting ready to start his sixth over.
Interestingly, this is the second time in consecutive Tests that fans have stepped onto the field and interrupted play to click a selfie with the Indian cricket captain. The first time it occurred in Rajkot as two fans rushed while the match was on to click a selfie with Virat, however, he obliged and posed with them for the picture before the umpires intervened telling them to get off the field, so the game could continue.
