IND vs SA 2nd Test: Twitter erupts as fan invades pitch and spears Rohit Sharma in attempt to touch his feet

Posted On / /

A fan on Saturday dodged the security personnel at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium during the ongoing second Test between India and South Africa and made his way on to the playing area.

The fan came to Rohit Sharma, who was standing at the slips and tried to touch the opener’s feet. The incident occurred when Vernon Philander walked in to bat after the dismissal of Senuran Muthusamy.

With Rohit falling on the ground, it almost gave away the impression that the fan “speared” the Nagpur-born cricketer. While the Indian players saw the funny side of it, one person who was unimpressed with it was Sunil Gavaskar, who, on-air, lashed out at the security personnel for letting it happen.

Here is how Twitter reacted to the incident:
