This is not the first time that international teams have faced such behavior from Indian crowds. In 1996 World Cup when Indian batting line collapsed the crowd began hurling bottles to the players and then set fire in the stands.
Similar incident happened in Asian Test Championship in 1999 when bottles were thrown on Pakistan players and on the final match crowd attempted to set fire to the stadium.
