A diehard fan breached the security of the JSCA International Stadium Complex, Ranchi to touch Rohit Sharma’s feet. Though the matches are played in strict bio-bubble environments, the fan bumped into the playing area and tried to touch Sharma’s feet. As soon as he chimed in whilst the ongoing match, it caught the attention of the on-lookers.
The video of the same started making rounds on social media platforms. Sharma has taken over as India’s full-time T20I skipper from the home series against New Zealand. The batter has ruled the white-ball format with his sheer flair over the years and is one of the pivotal players of the side across formats.
He has a huge fan base in the country and thus a spectator entering the field to express his respect towards him isn’t a surprising thing. Such instances have often happened on the cricket field and it only exudes the craze and love of the on-lookers towards the game.
Rohit also is one of the most successful captains in the IPL wherein he has led the team to the title five times. His stint with the Mumbai Indians further stretches his fan base that adores their captain for his golden run. This incident thus portrays that cricket rules the Indian imagination and the fans leave no opportunity to capture a glimpse of their beloved players.

About the match, though New Zealand got to a steady start, the Indian bowlers brought the team back in the game. Martin Guptill and Daryl Mitchell dominated India’s pace bowling duo of Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Deepak Chahar in the powerplay. However, Chahar made a stronger comeback by sending back Guptil with 31 runs to his account.
Axar Patel then provided India with a much-needed second breakthrough. He scalped the wicket of Mark Chapman as the Black Caps’ was reduced to 79-2. Daryl Mitchell and Glenn Phillips then carried the momentum further for the Kiwis before debutant Harshal Patel struck with the wicket of Mitchell.
He then also chimed in with the prized scalp of dangerous-looking Glenn Phillips. Owing to a clinical display by the Indian bowlers, New Zealand was restricted to 153 despite a flying start.
