Amid the pandemic, fans were allowed for the first time inside the stadium for an international match between India and Australia in the first ODI. During the match, two protesters breached the security and ran across the field.

Both the protestors made their way into the field of play before being escorted out. One was caught carrying a placard denouncing India’s Adani Group’s coal project in Australia. The moment took place just before pacer Navdeep Saini was getting ready to bowl the sixth over of Australia's innings. 

After minutes of disruption, the two were escorted out by the security. Meanwhile, the security looked slow as they took time before intervening. This incident has raised question marks over the security arrangements for the high-profile series.

The front of the protestors’ T-shirt displayed “StopAdani” while the back read “Stop Coal”. #StopAdani Take Action.” 

“We’ve got a couple of pitch invaders protesting about something,” Adam Gilchrist said on Fox Sports. Even few protestors, going by the name Stop Adani, were spotted outside the Sydney Cricket Ground before the match started. 

“Millions of Indian taxpayers who are watching the first game of the Indian cricket tour have a right to know that the State Bank of India is considering handing their taxes to a billionaire’s climate-wrecking coal mine,” a statement from Stop Adani read.
