Former Indian skipper Sunil Gavaskar is very upset with the repeated security breach by infamous pitch invader Daniel Jarvis, known as Jarvo 69. Gavaskar believes it is very disturbing how security is being breached regularly.


Jarvo breached the security at The Oval during the second day’s play between India and England. It was the third instance when he made his way out to the middle of the ground. He was first seen during the Lord’s Test when he came out to the field wearing an Indian jersey after the tea break.

The second incident occurred during the Headingley Test when he came out with helmet and pads on and a bat in his hand to bat after Rohit Sharma’s dismissal in the second innings.

Gavaskar isn’t pleased with the repetitive pitch invasion and security breach in England. He feels the concerned official should wake up.

“The breach of security for yet another time by the same person at the current Test match at The Oval is most disturbing. The fact that this serial offender actually barged into Jonny Bairstow should wake the mandarins at the ECB to the dangers of a player being seriously hurt by such breaches of security,” Gavaskar wrote in his column for Mid-Day.

He further mentioned Jarvo should be banned from visiting the grounds.

“Today, it is easy to identify potential troublemakers and especially someone who in the last few days has breached the security at an earlier venue. So not allowing them entry into the ground itself would be the best option. Fortunately, nothing untoward happened and the offender will probably be fined heavily, most of which will be covered by the wagers he would have won for doing what he did,” he added.

The 72-year-old believes nobody knew Jarvo before he started breaching the security.

“Before these intrusions, nobody even knew his name or who he was. But now, after wearing a counterfeit India cricket team shirt and entering three cricket grounds, he is famous or rather infamous, but still known to Indian cricket lovers now,” Gavaskar further wrote.
