Invader crosses boundary to meet Virat Kohli: An invader was successful in his attempt to meet the Indian captain in Indore.
During the third day of the first Test of the ongoing Bangladesh’s tour of India at the Holkar Stadium in Indore, a lapse in security witnessed an invader crossing the boundary ropes to enter the ground and meet Indian captain Virat Kohli.
It all happened during one of the drinks break on what turned out to be the final day of the match. A video which has gone viral on social media platform Twitter sees the invader crossing the ropes and running all the way to the other side of the ground to meet Kohli.
With the Indian captain in a team huddle, he was surprised as the invader touched his feet from nowhere. It was at the same point that two security personnel were seen entering the ground. A generous Kohli was then seen gesturing to the security that they don’t treat the invader in a harsh manner.
As far as the match is concerned, India beat Bangladesh by an innings and 130 runs to attain 60 points in the ongoing ICC World Test Championship. India bundled out Bangladesh for 213 in 69.2 overs in the second innings. Having registered bowling figures of 16-7-31-4, fast bowler Mohammed Shami was the pick of Indian bowlers today.
Other than Shami, spinners Ravichandran Ashwin (3) and fast bowlers Umesh Yadav (2) and Ishant Sharma (1) were also among the wickets. India will now go into the historic day-night Test at the Eden Gardens with a 1-0 lead up their sleeves.

One more comprehensive win for Team India. While the batting was excellent, it was very exciting to see the way the three Indian quick bowlers intimidated the batsmen. Complete team performance. #INDvBAN @StarSportsIndia
