An Australian of Chinese-Filipino descent, Wayne Johnson, breached the security cordon during the World Cup final between India and Australia at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad. This occurred just before the first drinks break of India’s innings, and Johnson managed to reach Virat Kohli in the middle before being apprehended by security personnel.
Johnson wore a face mask with a design of the Palestinian flag and a T-shirt with the slogans “Stop Bombing Palestine” on the front and “Save Palestine” on the back. The International Cricket Council (ICC) does not allow political protests at cricket matches, but as Johnson is a foreign national, it is not yet known what action will be taken against him.
It is important to note that Israel and the Palestinian militant group Hamas have been at war since October 7. Amid this incident, it is crucial to maintain peace and harmony among all parties involved.
