Pitch invader charged
A 37-year-old spectator has been charged with assault after wrestling Pakistan's Khalid Latif to the ground during a one-day international against Australia, police said on Monday.
The Perth resident will face common assault and trespass charges in a magistrates court on February 16 after Sunday's incident, which sparked calls for tougher penalties for pitch invaders.
Video footage showed the man running onto Perth's WACA Ground and tackling the fielder from behind, slightly injuring his neck. The game was also marred by Shahid Afridi's two-match ban for biting the ball.
