Watch: Rohit Sharma’s terrifying encounter with pitch invader in huge security breach during MI vs RR

Rohit Sharma scared by Pitch invader

Rohit Sharma was left scared after a pitch invader approached him during the ongoing match between Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Monday (April 1).

The incident took place during the Royals’ innings. Rohit Sharma was standing at the first slip and was apparently looking at the location of the pitch before being caught off guard by the fan running towards him. When the fan approached Rohit Sharma, he got scared for a moment and took a few steps back.

The former Indian captain, however, let the fan hug him. The fan also hugged Ishan Kishan before walking away and being escorted out of the ground by security personnel.

This is the second time this season that a fan has managed to circumvent all security measures and enter the field. A similar incident took place in Bengaluru last week when Royal Challengers Bengaluru were playing against Punjab Kings. A fan entered the field to hug Virat Kohli before he was escorted off by security personnel.

Playing field encroachment incidents are becoming quite common in India and authorities need to take stern measures to prevent any mishap.

Watch Rohit Sharma Get Scared Due To Field Invader:

Talking about the ongoing game between Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals, the home team could only manage 125/9 in the allotted 20 overs after being asked to bat first. At one point, they were reeling at 20 for 4 before a 56-run stand between Hardik Pandya and Tilak Varma steadied the ship. Mumbai, however, could not close their innings strongly and finished with 125.

Rohit Sharma also failed to shine in the game and went for a golden duck in the first over. At the time of writing this report, the Royals were 54 for 3 in the eighth over.
