An utterly shameful and disgusting act was witnessed on the third day of the England vs India Test where England spectators were seen throwing champagne bottle corks at the Indian opener KL Rahul.
The incident happened in the 68th over of England’s first inning when KL Rahul was fielding near the boundary rope and the crowd at the Lord’s started throwing champagne bottle corks at Rahul.
However, later the Indian captain took the matter in his hands and asked (gestured) the opener to throw the corks out of the ground.

However, the incident was caught on camera and since then the Indian fans are not keeping calm and expressing their anger on the micro-blogging website Twitter.
We have picked a few of those reactions for you. Have a look.
Team India, later discussed the issue with on-field umpires, Michael Gough and Richard Illingworth after the conclusion of the 68th over.
As far as the match is concerned, England captain Joe Root is currently batting at 145 and Moeen Ali is batting at 20. The three lions have managed to score 327 runs for the loss of five wickets in 105 overs at the time of writing.
The Indian bowlers are not as effective as they were on the previous day as they have managed to dismiss only Jonny Bairstow and Jos Buttler on the third day.
Team India was earlier bundled out for 364 runs on the second day of the match with their king of swing, James Anderson emerging out the star of the day as he picked 5 wicket haul and ended his spell with figures of 5/62.
