However, Kohli wasted managed to spot the fan from far away and he immediately took a few steps back, asking the fan to stand. On realising his mistake, the fan turned back and seeing that the entire crowd started cheering. Here is the video of the incident:

As part of the bio-bubble protocols, there is a high amount of strictness and the players and match officials are barred from meeting anybody outside the bubble. Even, the training sessions before the match are held with every precaution taken care of. 50 per cent crowd has been allowed in the ongoing pink-ball Test at the Narendra Modi Stadium.

When ANI contacted a GCA official about the fan breaching the protocols, he replied: “We will look into the matter and we will find out who the fan was. Some sort of action we will take as the matter is serious and safety of everyone is of utmost importance.”

Earlier in the game, Axar Patel claimed a career-best 6-38 as he and spin colleague Ravichandran Ashwin helped the hosts to bundle out the visitors for 112 on an opening day of the Ahmedabad Test. Playing his 100th test, seamer Ishant Sharma had Dom Sibley caught in the slip in the third over before the Indian spinners wreaked havoc. The Indian skipper, Virat Kohli introduced spin as early as in the seventh over and Patel trapped Jonny Bairstow lbw for naught with his first delivery.

Before the partnership between Crawley and Root could flourish, R Ashwin intervened as he dismissed the England captain lbw for 17. Root reviewed the decision but could not prolong his innings. It was a sense of deja vu for England who was dismissed for 58 in their previous pink-ball test in New Zealand three years ago.
