England vs India, 4th Test: Day 2 Highlights

In fact, Daniel Jarvis, who goes by the name Jarvo69, rammed into Jonny Bairstow after running onto the Oval on Day 2 of the 4th Test.

“Yes, Jarvo69 has been arrested by the South London police,” a BCCI source tracking the development told PTI.

It is learnt that he has been arrested on suspicions of assault as he barged into English batsman Jonny Bairstow during the day.

The Yorkshire County had decided to fine and ban him for life. However, the England and Wales Cricket Board is yet to take any action against the YouTuber.

After trying to set field at Lord’s and taking stance at Leeds, Jarvo was seen sprinting just when Umesh Yadav was on top of his bowling mark.

He was once again evicted from the field by the stewards.

The Indian team’s administrative and security staff is keeping a close watch but as of now won’t file an official complaint about the serial offender, according to the news agency.

Earlier, Yorkshire CCC informed that Jarvo69 is banned for life from entering the Headingley premises.

That day, just after the fall of Rohit Sharma’s wicket, ‘Jarvo 69’ was seen popping up from the gallery located on one side of the sightscreen, wearing batting pads and a blue helmet with a surgical face mask on.

Someone from the crowd also threw a cricket bat as he entered the field of play and reached the pitch to take guard when the ground security personnel intercepted him. He was promptly evicted from the Headingley premises.
