Watch: Fan invades pitch to touch Rohit Sharma’s feet

XtraTime Web Desk: Another Test match and another incident of fan invading the pitch. This time it happened on day 3 of the second Test between India & South Africa at the Maharashtra Cricket Association International Stadium on Saturday afternoon. A fan dodged all the security personals to touch Rohit Sharma’s feet.

The incident happened soon after Vernon Philander walked in to bat. Taking everyone by surprise, the fan sprinted towards Rohit — who was fielding at slip cordon — before trying to fall on his feet. While the players had a hearty laugh, the security officials were quick enough to take the fan away from the ground.

It was the third such incident in the ongoing India-South Africa series. Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar who was commentating blamed it on poor security arrangements. “Security not there to watch the match for free,” Gavaskar said on air. “This is a perennial problem in India.”
