Team India skipper Rohit Sharma, during the pre-match media scrum, was asked by a reporter regarding his emotions when a pitch invader was being restrained by security during the IND vs BAN warm-ups. But Rohit looked upset as he cleared the air by saying that such instances should not be promoted by anyone.  


"See, first of all, I would say that no one should intrude into the ground. This is not right. And this question was also not right, because we don't want to promote this thing that who is running and coming to the ground.

"I think, players' security is important, similarly, the security of the people outside is also important. We are playing cricket, yes, but the people sitting outside, it is important for them to understand that there are rules and regulations for every country. It is very important to follow them and understand them. So, that's all I can say. Now, what more can I say?" said Rohit Sharma
