The ICC says it has reviewed and enhanced the security apparatus at the grounds hosting the Champions Trophy following the pitch invasion at the conclusion of the India-Pakistan match on Saturday. It also said any such acts in the future would lead to arrests and prosecution.
"A number of arrests were made and those people have been prosecuted," an ICC spokesperson told the Hindustan Times. "Any spectator who invades the pitch can expect to be arrested, prosecuted and if found guilty, fined under current South African legislation."
After the final wicket fell, Pakistani fans crossed the advertising board separating the ground from the stands to celebrate the win before the last few were tackled by security guards. South African grounds allow spectators relatively easy access to the playing area, with an advertising board typically presenting the only hurdle.
