Team India fan Jarvo, who stole the limelight after breaching the security and coming out to the field for India during the Lord’s Test match, has once again returned at Leeds. However, this time, he came out as a batsman with all his cricketing gear and managed to reach the crease as well before the security took him off the field.

Meanwhile, he was seen wearing the Indian jersey as well. This happened after Rohit Sharma’s dismissal who got out after scoring 59 off 156. He stitched 82 runs for the 2nd wicket with Cheteshwar Pujara, who has scored his first half-century in this tour. Notably, India had posted only 78 runs in their first innings.

Meanwhile, former England captain Michael Vaughan was unimpressed with Team India’s decision to start Day 2 of the third Test against England with the speedster Ishant Sharma. However, India had to take wickets in the first hour of play and Vaughan was surprised to see that as Ishant failed to make a mark as well.

Ishant Sharma has had a poor start at Headingley. He has conceded over four runs per over and failed to maintain proper line and length a swell. Michael Vaughan also stated that Virat Kohli will have to answer for his strange tactics.

“You are looking at the start of the day’s play. Ishant Sharma was by far the worst Indian seamer yesterday. You start with him the next day, in an hour that you have to win, you (should) surely go to your best bowler, Jasprit Bumrah. Shami didn’t take the new ball yesterday for whatever reason. And Virat will have to answer it and he will have to answer it quite heavily,” Michael Vaughan said on Test Match Special podcast.

The former captain has also pointed out how Team India need to adapt if they want to bounce back in the series as well. He continued: “The best teams in the world adapt. This Indian team are a good team, but they can’t be up there with the great teams unless they are actually willing to accept that they need to arrive and do things differently.”

R Ashwin also reacted to the incident after the day’s play, he tweeted, “Today’s play was as good as it can get with @[email protected]@imVkohli and Jaarvo showing great intent and grit!🤩😂😂 Keep going fellas and stop doing this Jaarvo. #IndvsEng”.
