India and England are fighting it out in the second Test of the Pataudi Trophy at Lord's. However, there were some interruptions on Day 2, as bottle corks were thrown at KL Rahul while an English fan entered the playing field.
Things are getting intense between India and England as it is a battle between the two in the second Test of the 2021 Pataudi Trophy at Lord's. However, it seems like the English fans are getting frustrated with the Indians' resilience, causing interruptions.
On Day 2, on Saturday, there was a mild interruption during the opening session when bottle corks were thrown at KL Rahul, who was fielding near the boundary. After the incident, skipper Virat Kohli expressed his displeasure and asked Rahul to remove the corks. Meanwhile, the Indians had a chat with on-field umpires Michael Gough and Richard Illingworth on the same, as play was halted briefly.
In another incident, an English fan entered the playing area while wearing an India shirt with 'Jarvo' printed on it. As security officials apprehended him, he pointed at the logo of the Board of Control for Cricket in India in his shirt.
The pitch invader gestured towards the fieldset, to which pacer Mohammed Siraj laughed. Although the security officials ejected the fan out of the ground, it could have been possible that he was intoxicated since beer is allowed at English venues.
