A security breach at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai allowed a youngster to enter the field of play and stroll towards one of the practice pitches where the England team was training during the lunch break on day three of the second Test against India.

The individual, sporting a replica Indian jersey with Kohli's No. 18 on it, did not get close enough to any English players. However, given the circumstances, and the bio bubble concerns, such incidents are potentially very dangerous.

The security personnel escorted the young spectator out of the stadium. He entered the ground from the E stand. It has been learnt that the young spectator, a class X student, has been let off with a warning. However, he will no longer be allowed to watch the Test match.
