Australia’s clash with India was disrupted after a man wearing a ‘FREE PALESTINE’ t-shirt entered the field of play in Ahmedabad, where 130,000 fans were in attendance for the big match.

The field invader also wore a green, red, white and black face mask and headed towards Kohli.

He was apprehended by security, removed from the field and play resumed.
