Watch video: Pitch invader pretends to be Indian fielder

A fan wearing a Team India t-shirt meddled the pitch on Day 3 of the ongoing Test against England at Lord's, leaving the players confused. The incident took place in the second session of the play, following which the individual was escorted off the pitch. The video of the event has widely been circulated on social media, which shows India seamer Mohammed Siraj and all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja left in splits.

"Some random chap in whites had made his way into the middle with the Indian players, and he stood there as if he was about to take part in the Test match," said former England batsman Michael Atherton on Sky Sports.

Here is the video: 


Meanwhile, England skipper Joe Root produced a fine effort to help his side gain complete control in the contest. Leading the team from the front, the right-handed batsman went on to complete 150, thus putting England in a position to take a first-innings lead.  The English skipper found great support from Jonny Bairstow as the pair stitched a 100-plus partnership after which he went to construct two 50-plus stands with Jos Buttler and Moeen Ali.
