Sydney: Two protestors on Friday barged into the Sydney Cricket Ground, the first ODI (One Day International) between India and Australia.

The protestors carried placard against Adani Group which read, "NO $1B ADANI LOAN"

The front of the protestor's T-shirt displayed "StopAdani Take Action".

The protestors during India vs Australia 1st ODI were denouncing India's Adani Group's coal project in Australia.

One of them intruded into the stadium and ran close to the pitch when Indian pacer Navdeep Saini was gearing up for his run-up to the bowl of the sixth over of the Australian inning.

Some protestors by the name of 'Stop Adani' were spotted outside the Sydney Cricket Ground before the match started.

"Millions of Indian taxpayers who are watching the first game of the Indian cricket tour have a right to know that the State Bank of India is considering handing their taxes to a billionaire's climate-wrecking coal mine," a statement from Stop Adani read.
