Hundreds of spectators rushed to the pitch after the T20 Blast tournament match between Birmingham Bears and Derbyshire on Thursday. This behavior of the audience has been strongly criticized by Warwickshire Chief Executive Officer Stuart Cain.
Hundreds of spectators rushed to the pitch after Derbyshire’s five-wicket win over Birmingham. Although no one was injured during this, but this behavior of this audience can prove to be very dangerous during the Corona period.
Pitch invasion at Edgbaston after the game tonight. Less than ideal in this current Covid environment. Was happening during the game, too. pic.twitter.com/koGDmJAP1P

Kane told Cricinfo, “After the end of the match, the behavior of some students was shameful. The organizers behind his presence were well aware of the social distance rule and everyone was informed about it while giving tickets. Messages were being given repeatedly on PA systems and screens. Once they are identified, a live time ban will be imposed on them.
He said, “As the society is battling to control the pandemic for the last 15 months, this kind of behavior by some people hurts the heart. We apologize to the viewers who followed social distancing. We will not allow such visitors to come here again.”
