Youtuber Daniel ‘Jarvo’ Jarvis stunned Indian Bowler Umesh Yadav, as he ran into the stadium during the India Vs England 4th Test currently underway disrupting the proceedings. Jarvo, who had earlier invaded the field twice in the ongoing Test series – briefly disrupting the Day 2 of the fourth Test.
The pitch invader at The Oval in London was a man, identified as Jarovs at Lord’s and Leeds – and was banned from Headingley Cricket Ground for life, intruded proceedings once again when he rushed on to the field in the 34th over of England’s first innings at the 4th Test Match.
He ran past bowler Umesh Yadav and bumped into batsman Jonny Bairstow. He then released the ball from his hands as Bairstow himself looked in disbelief. The security guards escorted him off the ground.
“A man has been arrested on suspicion of assault following an incident at the Oval Cricket Ground on Friday, 3 September. He remains in custody at a south London police station,” the Metropolitan Police said in a statement to British media.
Pitch Invasion India Vs England – Unacceptable ECB says
The ECB said that any pitch invasion was “completely unacceptable” in a statement to British media.
“The ECB and our host venues do not tolerate any such behaviour which risks the safety of players, officials and staff,” the cricket body added.
“The ECB works closely with all our venues to share information and enhance their security operation.”
Meanwhile, India finished strong on Day 2, as openers Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul added 43 runs for the first wicket till the play was called off for the day. India are now trailing by 56 runs from England and will look to take lead on Day 4 of the Test.
