The Indian team almost fielded 12 men at the start of the session on Day 3 of the ongoing second match of the 5-Test series against England At Lord’s. An Indian fan from the crowd walked out with India’s XI onto Lord’s cricketer and tried convincing security he was there to play.
The incident took play quite early on Day 3 and the fan was wearing a jersey similar to that of the Indian team’s whites with his name Jaarvo Written on it and jersey no. was 69. Here is the video of the incident:

England was 216-3 at lunch in reply to India’s first innings 364, still, 148 runs behind. The hosts had resumed on 119-3, a deficit of 245 runs, after opener Rory Burns had fallen for a well-made 49 toward the end on Friday. Not for the first time, the England skipper had come in to bat with his side in trouble, reduced to 23-2 when the Indian fast bowler, Mohammed Siraj removed Dom Sibley and the recalled Haseeb Hameed, out for first-ball naught, with successive deliveries.
Root, the only England batsman to surpassed the 50-tun mark in last week’s rain-marred drawn first Test at Trent Bridge, with scores of 64 and 109, went to another half-century with a stylish square-driven four off Siraj. It was his seventh boundary in 82 balls faced.
Conditions were more in favor of the batsmen than on the first couple of days but England, even though they had Moeen Ali and Jos Buttler to come, still had work to do to get back on level terms.
In an uncalled-for incident, the English fans were seen throwing bottle corks near KL Rahul during the first session of Day 3 of the second Test match against England at Lord’s.
