Cheeky fan rushes Kohli to get Test embrace

An overenthusiastic fan breached security at Hyderabad cricket ground on Friday to take a selfie with Virat Kohli, but was stopped before he was able to plant a kiss on the Indian captain's cheek.

Kohli was at mid-wicket in the opening session of the first day of India's second Test against the West Indies when the young fan ran on the field and embraced the Indian star.

Security officers overpowered the youngster and hauled him off the field as the crowd roared and clapped. The umpires called for a drinks break as Kohli was visibly upset.

It was the second incident in the series after Kohli was surrounded by selfie-taking fans in the middle of the first Test in Rajkot last week.

Kohli, 29, is often the subject of adulation with one fan touching his feet before taking a selfie during an Indian Premier League game this year.

Roston Chase was batting on 98 as West Indies were 295-7 at stumps after electing to bat on day one of the second Test against India in Hyderabad on Friday.

Chase and Devendra Bishoo, on two, were batting at close of play. Skipper Jason Holder made 52 during a 104-run seventh-wicket stand with Chase.

Roston Chase's unbeaten 98-run knock provided the main resistance as the West Indies slipped to 197 for six at tea after choosing to bat first in the second Test against India on Friday.

India are a bowler short after debutant paceman Shardul Thakur suffered a groin injury in his second over and limped back to the pavilion. He was sent for scans but was expected to return to the field.
