The incident took place at the end of the 15th over on the first day’s play which caused the game to be halted for a few minutes. Drinks, which was soon called upon following the incident saw Kohli lash out at the security.

This isn’t the first time such an incident is seen taking place on the field. Just in the earlier match at Rajkot, two fans came onto the ground where Kohli was fielding and requested for a selfie.

Kohli, who was then unfazed by such a interruption, posted for a picture before umpires intervened and ​asked the duo to clear. Indian then went on to win the game by an innings and 272 runs and take a 1-0 lead in the series.

Now, Mohammad Khan, who belongs to Kadapa District of Andhra Pradesh, has a case filed against him for trespassing, said Police inspector P Venkateswarlu.
