Security reportedly evicted three fans after the incident.

“It was just a bit of bad-mouthing from the crowd, it’s not the greatest, and it’s not needed.”

“We’re out there trying to do our jobs, people are out there enjoying the day’s cricket. Unfortunately, sometimes you have people who overstep the mark.

“I think it’s important to stand up for ourselves because if we’re not standing up for ourselves as well, then we can cop it, especially when people overstep the mark they need to be told.”
