The one-off Test between Bangladesh and Afghanistan was halted on the second day when a fan rushed onto the playing field to give Bangladesh Test captain Shakib Al Hasan a bouquet of flowers during the third ball of the 11th over of Afghanistan’s batting.
When Shakib had been bowling his first over of the day at Zahur Ahmed Chowdhury Stadium in Chittagong yesterday, the incident took place. The fan had knelt down and presented the flowers to the captain then saluted him. The police had afterwards taken him out of the stadium.
The fan’s entrance into the stadium bypassing all the ‘tight’ security, left the on duty security personnel red faced.
Mashrafe Bin Mortaza and Mushfiqur Rahim too had been faced with a similar situation on the field.
