Indian test cricketers, including batsmen Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir, were escorted away unhurt after fans rioted at a charity Twenty20 game in the eastern city of Patna.

Around 20 people were injured when policemen with batons chased fans who invaded the field to get close to their favourite players at the prize distribution.
