  • Intend to attend all Champions Trophy games to cheer Indian team, says Vijay Mallya

Vijay Mallya attended a charity ball hosted by Virat Kohli at London for Justice and Care organisation.

Mallya wrote on his Twitter profile, "Wide sensational media coverage on my attendance at the IND v PAK match at Edgbaston".

Mallya was seen attending the India-Pakistan match in the Champions Trophy.

Vijay Mallya, it seems, is everywhere around Team India in England.

Mallya, whose now-defunct Kingfisher Airlines owes more than Rs 9,000 crore, including interest to various banks, had fled India on March 2 a year ago.

Social media rushes to define Trump's 'covfefe' tweet
The original post from Trump has been retweeted more than 100,000 times. "Enjoy!" he tweeted , in an unusual display of self-deprecating humour.

TV cameras spotted a suited Mallya, basking in the sun, sitting in the VIP stand and enjoying the cricket.

A BCCI source present at the event shared that Kohli and the Indian team were "uncomfortable" due to Mallya's presence.

While one concedes he did not gatecrash the charity dinner given by Virat Kohli's foundation in London and was a guest of one of those people who had bought a table, plain common sense indicates you should avoid being a pest. Mallya's presence is one of the reason that team left early. He was the former owner of the IPL franchise Royal Challenger's Banglore, a minority stakeholder in United Spirits and Kingfisher Airlines.

Kohli has been closely associated in charity activities while also starting the Virat Kohli foundation to raise funds for kids a while back. The players were very uncomfortable.

Mallya was spotted arriving at the ball in a Rolls Royce, and sources close to the team indicated Virat Kohli and Co had no idea he had bought a table, or was among the invitees. On April 18, Mallya had been arrested by the Scotland Yard in London and produced before the Westminster Magistrates' Court where he was granted conditional bail pending deposit of £650,000 prior to his release from custody.
