Earlier on Sunday, we had seen a surprise fan during the India and Pakistan match at Edgbaston watching the match from the stands and he is none other than Liquor baron Vijay Mallya. He was caught on cameras and social media had buzz over the pictures of Mallya watching the match.

He was absconding businessman left to England a year ago. He was not only sitting in the stands watching the match, he was also given a Champions Trophy lanyard with access to multiple sections of the stadium and the playing area.

Clad in his trademark white coat and sunglasses, the loan defaulting businessman was also seen chatting with former cricketer Sunil Gavaskar. The social media sites covered the news and it was trending for a while. Finally, Mallya spoke out on his presence at Sunday’s India-Pakistan. He asserted that he plans on attending all future matches the team plays in the series.

On Tuesday morning, Mallya took to Twitter to make his intentions clear. He wrote, “Wide sensational media coverage on my attendance at the IND v PAK match at Edgbaston. I intend to attend all games to cheer the India team.”

His next tweet directed towards captain Kohli congratulating him for impeccable performance against the rivals. He said, “World class player World Class Captain World-class gentleman @imVkohli. Bravo Virat.”

Vijay Mallya was recently spotted at Kohli’s charity ball hosted in London on Monday evening. The whole Indian Cricket team attended the event which was organized to raise funds for the Justice and Care organization.

Mallya has been on the run since March 2016 and currently resides in England. Mallya, whose now-defunct Kingfisher Airlines owes more than Rs 9,000 crore to various banks, had fled India for the UK in March 2016.

He was arrested by British authorities in April on India’s extradition request in connection with a Rs 900 crore loan default case of IDBI Bank being probed by the CBI, only to be released on bail within hours by a London court. The cases implicate him on charges of embezzlement, debt recovery, and foreign exchange transgression.

Kohli and the Indian team will next take on Sri Lanka in their second round fixture. A win against SL will assure a semi-final berth for the tournament favorites.
