During the ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 finals between India and Australia at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, a man wearing a 'Free Palestine' t-shirt entered the pitch.
The individual attempted to hug Virat Kohli and wore a white t-shirt with the message 'Stop bombing Palestine' on the front and 'Free Palestine' on the back.
The man, clad in red shorts, also wore a face mask in the colours of Palestine.
The pitch visit led to a brief halt in the match, and security officials swiftly escorted the man, resuming the game afterward.
Despite the unexpected moment, Virat Kohli and KL Rahul aimed to build a partnership after India lost 3 wickets quickly.
The incident occurred in front of a packed audience at the Narendra Modi Stadium, with cricket enthusiasts gathered for the highly-anticipated World Cup finals between India and Australia.
