Watch: A Fan Invades The Field To Meet Proteas Cricketer Quinton De Kock
In cricket, field invasion has now raised as it is happening quite regularly, especially in India. Once again we saw it in the ongoing Ranchi Test between India and South Africa where a fan entered in the field to meet the visiting cricketer Quinton de Kock.
India and South Africa are currently busy in the Ranchi Test which is the third and final Test of this series. The Test match started on Saturday (20th October).
On the day one of the ongoing Ranchi Test, once a fan broke the security and entered to the field. He ran to meet the Proteas cricketer Quinton de Kock who was busy on the field. While Heinrich Klaasen has made Test debut and playing the wicketkeeping role, de Kock is playing as a non-wicketkeeper. After hugging the Proteas cricketer, the fan tried to touch de Kock’s feet but the security members immediately caught him and forced him to move outside the field.
In that chaotic moment, the fan missed out his slipper on the ground. Soon, Quinton de Kock returned that slipper to the fan.
Similar fan invasion happened earlier in this series
India have already won the Test series as they are leading it by 2-0 ahead of the ongoing Test. India won the first Test at Visakhapatnam by 203 runs and second Test at Pune by an innings and 137 runs. In both those Test matches, we saw the field invasion.
During the Visakhapatnam Test match, a fan invaded the field to meet the Indian captain Virat Kohli. That fan also took a selfie to catch that moment.
In the Pune Test, a Rohit Sharma fan broke the security to meet his idol and tried to touch his feet.
These field invasions not only interrupt the game, but it also put the serious question on the field security.
Like the previous two Tests of this series, India are dominating in the ongoing Ranchi Test. After struggling on 39/3, Rohit Sharma (212), Ajinkya Rahane (115) and the other middle-order batsmen helped India to score 497/9 decl. In reply, South Africa were battling on 9/2 at the end of the day two.
