The incident took place just before the first drinks break during India’s innings and the person reached Virat Kohli in the middle before being stopped by security personnel.
The camp invader was identified as Wayne Johnson, an Australian of Chinese-Filipino origin, who was arrested and taken to the Chand Kheda police station in Ahmedabad, according to PTI.
Johnson was wearing a face mask with the design of the Palestinian flag and a T-shirt with the slogans “Stop Bombing Palestine” on the front and “Save Palestine” on the back. The ICC does not allow political protests at cricket games, but as Johnson is a foreign national, it is not yet known what kind of action will be taken against him.
Israel and the Palestinian militant group Hamas have been at war since October 7.
