ICC on Wednesday apologised to India for insult to the tri-colour at the Punjab Cricket Association stadium in Mohali.

In a bizarre incident, a "spotter" for ICC merchandise rights holder, tramped upon a balloon which had the Indian national colours.

The "spotter" was objecting to sale of merchandise by an unauthorised vendor at the stadium, which is hosting the second semifinal between India and Pakistan in the ongoing World Cup.

The incident upset a number of fans following which an ICC spokesman said, "we apologise for this unacceptable behaviour to every single Indian".
