Bangalore:

A 47-year-old cricket fan died following a heart attack while watching the first India-Pakistan T20 match on Tuesday at the Chinnaswamy stadium, a senior police official said.

"Kamal Jain, who was watching the match from the stands, felt uneasy during the 18th over when Pakistan was batting. Though he was rushed to the nearby Mallya hospital by ambulance, he died after admission," Deputy Commissioner of Police Ravi Kante Gowda told IANS.

Mr Jain, who originally hailed from Odisha, was working in a private firm in Bangalore.

As he complained of breathing trouble, his family members, who were also present in the stands, carried him out of the stadium and rushed him to the hospital, less than 1km from the venue.

"No case is being registered as it was a natural death. It was a coincidence that he was in the stadium then when he felt uneasy as he was not able to breathe properly. It's sad," Mr Gowda added.

India lost to Pakistan by five wickets in a thriller.
