Pitch invader Jarvo arrested for suspicion of assault

In another shocking incident, the pitch invader Jarvo again made into the ground on the 2nd day of the 4th Test match played between India and England at Kennington Oval, London on Friday.

He ran into trouble by authorities after he was arrested for suspicion of assault for colliding with England wicketkeeper-batsman Jonny Bairstow. Named as Daniel Jarvo Jarvis by the British media, ran into England’s Ollie Pope when he crashed into Jonny Bairstow before being dragged by the police authorities at the ground.

Jarvo also went to the ground during the previous two Test matches at Lords and then at Headingly. The Indian captain Virat Kohli had serious chats with on field umpires.

The match between India and England is evenly poised going into day 3. Thanks to superb contributions by Pope, Bairstow, Moeen Ali, Woakes, the hosts took a lead of 99 runs. Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul survived 16 overs scoring 43 runs.

During the second Test match at Lords, Jarvo dressed up in an Indian kit while in the third test he came padded up. The match was stopped for some time as Jarvo was arrested by police officers.

Various cricket experts like Harsha Bhogle, Wasim Jaffer were not happy with the way Jarvo entered the ground and security arrangements at 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,” said the Metropolitan Police on Friday. 

“Any pitch invasion is completely unacceptable. The ECB and our host venues do not tolerate any such behavior which risks the safety of players, officials, and staff.

The ECB works closely with all our venues to share information and enhance their security operation,” said a spokesperson from the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB).
