News agency ANI confirmed the development today. The agency tweeted, “Security breach during the India versus Australia ICC World Cup 2023 Final match, in Ahmedabad after a spectator entered the field to meet Virat Kohli.”
By looking at the visuals, it was clear that the spectator was a supporter of Palestine. He was dressed up with flags and bandages.
Social media users are not at all happy with the development. Many social media users asked the ground security staff to be fired with immediate effect. This impacted the mood of the match drastically.
One X (formerly known as Twitter) user commented, “Whole India is anxiously waiting for India to play well and win the World Cup. However, such characterless spectators have no feelings for India. He must be booked for his act during such a high-profile match.”
“National Security Act should be imposed on the spectator,” said another X user.
One more X user added, “Security breach took place under the presence of BCCI chief Jay Shah. Scary!”
