India have been playing against South Africa in the third and final test match of the three-match test series where India had a great show on the Day 1. On the other hand, South Africa are unable to dismiss Indian batsmen to the Pavillion. As the match is going on in India, fans are one of the important things which can never forget in a cricket series. Recently, a new trend has come in the news as the fans have started breaching the security on various grounds to touch or get a selfie with the cricketers.

However, with this, matches are getting interrupted by this and fingers have been raising at the security measures put up by the cricket association as well. One incident already took place in Pune, when a fan entered the pitch to touch Rohit Sharma’s feet but at the end, tripped him on the ground.

Similarly, another incident happened on the cricket field soon, when a fan ran over to the crease to touch the feet of South Africa batsman Quinton de Kock, to which surprised him gave a hug in reply. The scene became even funnier, as the fan forgot to take his slipper while returning to the stand as he was being dragged but the player came forward to return the slipper of the fan.

However, India have already won the first two Tests by 2-0 in Vizag and Ranchi respectively and South Africa are looking forward to a consolation win. But it seems that South Africa might not be able to register their consolation win as India have been in a great position.
