Quinton de Kock was amused as a fan from the stands rushed in to touch his feet during the third Test between India and South Africa in Ranchi.
Following the gesture, security personnel swarmed in and dragged the fan off the field, which also resulted in the invader losing his slipper. Later, de Kock picked up the slipper and gave it to the ground staff.
Fans enjoyed the incident and shared their thoughts on Twitter.

Earlier, during the first Test in Visakhapatnam, a fan had entered the field and shook hands with India skipper Virat Kohli.
During the second Test in Pune, a similar incident was witnessed when a fan dodged the security personnel and made his way into the playing area. The fan rushed to Rohit Sharma, who was standing in the slip cordon and touched his feet.
