Fans take a selfie with Virat Kohli on Day 2 in Bengaluru

Security is of the utmost priority at a cricket ground. Especially in the COVID era, it is necessary that fans do not enter the field of play. However, the same happened on Sunday. Three fans got past the security and made their way to the centre of the field. They even managed to get a selfie with Virat Kohli. Of course, it was only possible because Virat obliged their request.

Bengaluru crowd has showered their love for Virat Kohli in the first two days. Considered as the adopted son of the city, every time Virat came out to bat, there was a huge reception, despite a wicket of India falling. Similarly, there was complete silence when he got out. Also, when he has been on the field, the crowd has kept cheering for the player. The former RCB skipper also responded to the crowd whenever he got an opportunity.


India is on course for an easy win against Sri Lanka

Meanwhile, India is all set to post a massive victory in the second Test of the series. Batting first, India made 252 in the first innings before Sri Lanka was bowled out for 109. India made 303-9 in the second innings, thereby setting a huge target for Sri Lanka. On the rank turner at Chinnaswamy, the target is almost unachievable. By the end of Day 2, India also got one wicket of Sri Lanka.
