India vs England: Virat Kohli was batting when he had to step away to avoid a pitch invader on Day 1 of the 3rd Test against England.

• A fan ran onto the pitch during the 3rd Test between India and England
• Virat Kohli had to step away to avoid the pitch invader
• The fan eventually turned around and went back to the stands
A fan on Wednesday breached the bio-bubble and security protocol on day one of the ongoing third Test between India and England at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad as he entered the field of play to meet India captain Virat Kohli. However, Kohli was quick to spot him from far away and he immediately took a few steps back, asking the fan to return. On realising his mistake, the fan turned back and seeing that the entire crowd started cheering.
As part of the bio-bubble protocols, there is a high amount of strictness and the players and match officials are not allowed to meet anybody. 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."


It was very clever': Swann lauds Kohli's field placements to spin bowling
It is always a pleasure for a former spin bowler to look at other spinners do well, even if they are from the opposition team. England spin great Graeme Swann, who is part of the commentary panel for the ongoing Test series between India and England was all praise for Indian spin duo of Axar Patel and Ravichandran Ashwin, after the two men spun the visitors out for 112 in the first innings of the third Test match at the Narendra Modi stadium in Ahmedabad on Wednesday.
Swann, who lauded the India spinners, was equally appreciative of captain Virat Kohli's field setting when the tweakers were bowling. He said the field placements around the bat and in the deep were very clever and that's what didn't allow England to get any runs whatsoever.

"Virat Kohli set very good fields. They had men in the outfield and also put a lot of pressure around the bat. They had deep men posted as well to tell to England 'if you are going to tee off, you will get caught in the deep'.

India's perfect day
England began Day 1 of the Ahmedabad Test against India by winning the toss. However, for the rest of the day, it turned out to be a chastening experience for the tourists who were rolled over for 112. The home side then took a vice-like grip on proceedings by finishing on 99 for 3 at stumps.
After snuffing England out for a cheap score, India rammed home the advantage on the back of a 64-run stand between Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma. The duo joined forces after India lost a couple of early wickets.

Thumping win!
Out of 30 wickets that fell through the course of two days in Ahmedabad, 28 went to spinners, as the D/N Test between India and England in under six full sessions, with the hosts chasing down the target of 49 without any loss. The clatter of wickets on Day 2 exemplified the tough conditions on display for the batsmen. One batsman after another had to negotiate conditions where a few exploded off the surface, which in turn sowed the seeds of doubt. Eventually, most of the batsmen were done in by the straighter-one. After Joe Root and Jack Leach had stunned the Indian batting line-up by snuffing out the side for just 145, Ravi Ashwin and Axar Patel made lightwork of England, dismissing them cheaply in just one session.
