The infamous pitch-invader Jarvo is reportedly arrested in London on suspicion of assault. He, again, ran to the ground during England’s innings and stumbled into Jonny Bairstow before being trudged off the ground.
Jarvo was first spotted during the Lord’s Test when he took the field after the Tea break and pretended to be an Indian fielder as he had worn an Indian jersey with Jarvo 69 printed on his back.
He, then, returned during the Headingley Test after Rohit Sharma’s wicket in the second innings. He walked in with helmet and pads on with bat in his hand. He reached the pitch and was trying to take a stance before the security personals dragged him off the ground. Furthermore, he received a life ban from attending matches at the Headingley stadium.
His most recent attempt to play for India happened during the second day’s play of the ongoing fourth Test at The Oval. During the first session, he breached the security and tried running in with a ball in his hand and bowled a ball to the batsman. In doing so, he bumped into Jonny Bairstow, who was standing at the non-striker’s end.
In the latest developments, the reports are suggesting that he has been arrested and kept in a South London Police station for the suspicion of assault.
“’Jarvo’ has been arrested on suspicion of assault – he remains in custody at a south London Police station,” tweeted English reporter Elizabeth Ammon.
His real name is Daniel Jarvis and is calls himself a comedian, filmmaker and prank-star on his social media accounts.
His second attempt to invade the pitch received a lot of criticism while some still found it funny. However, the commentators and experts have stopped entertaining his antics and have backlashed him for doing notorious things repeatedly.
On the match’s front, England gained crucial 99 runs lead when their innings ended for 290. Ollie Pope and Chris Woakes scored fifties in their comeback Test and put England in the driver’s seat.
