Virat Kohli smashed 29 runs off just 16 balls. The incident happened during Team India’s 18th over of bowling.
After a 14-month absence, star batsman Virat Kohli returned to the Team India T20I squad, eagerly anticipated. Notably, personal considerations kept Kohli from participating in the T20I series opener. In Indore, the seasoned hitter once again displayed class by helping to a winning cause with a fast knock. When he had his moments in the game, the fans enthusiastically joined in and shouted for him.
However, something happened with Virat Kohli throughout his ferocious knock. The game was in progress and he was batting when a fan took advantage of a brave moment to storm onto the field and see his hero. Virat Kohli was fielding close to the boundary at that moment. With much emotion, the fan gave a passionate hug to the Delhi-based batting legend, who dutifully returned the favor. Notably, Team India’s bowling was in its eighteenth over when the touching event happened.
In the meantime, Virat Kohli struck 29 runs off of only 15 deliveries in the second Twenty20 International of the series, continuing his recent good vein of form in limited-over cricket. His innings was cut short after he mistimed his short ball and Ibrahim Zadran caught him in the mid-off zone. During his explosive knock, he hammered five boundaries. It is noteworthy that during his time in the Indore crease, the 35-year-old kept a perfect strike rate of 181.25.
When a fan invades the field during the second Twenty20 International match, Indore police apprehend them.
The aforementioned fan was detained by police in the meantime for allegedly endangering public safety and law enforcement and posing a threat to Virat Kohli. After looking into the incident, a police officer provided comments, stating that the fan who had crashed into the field had climbed over the fence into the spectator section with the goal of reaching Kohli. The Tukoganj police verified that the young fan was in possession of a legitimate match ticket while the interrogation was still ongoing.
Additionally, the police disclosed that the fan was a fervent supporter of Virat Kohli and had hurried onto the pitch at the famed Holkar stadium by way of the gate bearing the name of the late Indian cricket player, Narendra Hirwani.
