Virat Kohli’s gesture won the hearts of netizens and earned praise on social media. However, Sunil Gavaskar had recently raised his voice against such incidents blaming security personnel for their irresponsibility.
Following a fan touched Rohit Sharma’s feet and unintentionally took the opener down during Pune Test vs South Africa, Gavaskar said, “These incidents happen because security people are not watching the crowd but are watching the match. This has been the perennial problem in India. The security is not there to watch the match for free. They are there to stop such interruptions from happening,”
