The second Test between India and England is being played at Lord’s, which is called the mecca of cricket. On the third day of the match, Saturday, the English spectators threw a cork (champagne bottle cap) at Indian opener KL Rahul or just hit.
It all happened after the 68th over. KL Rahul was fielding on the third man. The British audience began throwing corks at him. The Indian batsman picked up the cork and threw it off the field and was seen informing skipper Virat Kohli. It can be clearly seen in the TV footage that 6-7 corks were thrown around KL Rahul. His photos are also going viral on social media.
Indian captain Virat Kohli was not happy with the incident and suggested that Rahul be sacked. The game also came to a halt as the Indian players were talking to umpires Michael Gove and Richard Illingworth. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.
It is worth noting that in the first innings, the Indian team lost all their wickets and scored a respectable 364 runs, thanks to KL Rahul’s 129-run century. Answer: England scored 216 runs in 73 overs in 3 overs in the first innings till lunch on the third day.
