Fan Breaches Security, Tries To Kiss Virat Kohli

Kohli was fielding at mid-wicket at the time with 15 overs bowled on Day 1 of the second Test. The young fan ran on to the field and embraced Kohli, then took out his phone and tried to capture a selfie.

Kohli didn’t look pleased and tried to maintain his distance before security personnel hauled the fan off the field. With play delayed by the incident, the umpires called for the drinks break.

One of the on-field umpires, Ian Gould was also seen chatting with the Indian captain, who was visibly upset.

Kohli, 29, is often the subject of adulation with one fan touching his feet before taking a selfie during an Indian Premier League game this year.

Meanwhile, Windies skipper Jason Holder won the toss and elected to bat in Hyderabad. The Windies openers Kieran Powell and Kraigg Brathwaite gave their team a solid start but failed to kick-on as Indian spinners made their mark.

Powell was dismissed by Ravichandran Ashwin for 22 while Brathwaite fell to the guile of Kuldeep Yadav. Shai Hope (36) and Shimron Hetmeyer steadied the Windies ship but they suffered another jolt at the stroke of lunch as Hope fell to Umesh Yadav.

The Windies went into lunch at 86 for three.
