During australia and India's ICC Men's cricket World Cup final, a pro-Palestine protester was apprehended by security when he entered the pitch and placed his arm over virat kohli of India. After being detained, the invader was brought to the Chand Kheda police Station. He told the media while he was being held that meeting kohli was his main goal and that he supported Palestine.

When kohli was batting against Adam Zampa in the 14th over, the game was momentarily stopped. When a fan escaped the security guards and ran onto the field, india was leading 92/3 with kohli and KL rahul at the wicket. He gave kohli a hug, and the unwelcome attention clearly didn't bother him.
