Pitch invader Daniel Jarvis famously known as Jarvo (the name on his jersey with number 69) has finally been arrested for breaching the security at The Oval. He did it twice at the Headingley in two innings and was banned for lifetime from the venue and was also fined. On Friday, during the second day’s play, he came on to bowl with the same jersey he wore the last two times during the 34th over of England’s innings.
While the pitch invasion from him looked funny the first time, for that to happen two more times has raised serious questions over the ground security in England. At The Oval, Jarvo almost bowled the third delivery of the 34th over before barging in to Jonny Bairstow at the non-striker’s end. The batsman was clearly unaware of him running in and was shocked after Jarvo rammed into him.
The security had to rush in to take him away from the field. And this time, the concerned officials have taken a serious action of the incident and have gone ahead and arrested Jarvo for invading the pitch. He is currently in custody of South London police and it remains to be seen if any strict action is taken against him.
Ever since his first invasion took place, Jarvo became quite a famous personality across India and England and he ended up giving a few interviews too. But certainly, him breaching the security multiple times has irritated the fans as well.

England take a 99-run lead in the first innings
As far as the ongoing fourth Test is concerned, England are in the ascendancy having taken a crucial 99-run lead in the first innings. They were bundled out for 290 runs thanks to crucial contributions from their final five wickets and more importantly of Ollie Pope and Chris Woakes who scored half-centuries.
The pitch has turned out to best for batting and India will be hoping to bat long in their second innings to set a challenging target for the hosts. However, for that to happen, they will have to tackle a crucial first hour on the third hour.
