The Day 3 at Lord's has proven to be quite a dramatic one for everyone. While Joe Root smashed another classy hundred, it was the English crowd who were involved in quite a few incidents on Saturday. It all started in the first session when a few people from the crowd threw bottle corks towards KL Rahul in a shameful act.

The security at Lord's came under scrutiny with fans slamming them on social media for not being able to prevent these kind of acts. As teams walked out on the ground after lunch break, there was another security breach at the home of cricket when an Englishman entered the field wearing India's jersey, much to everyone's surprise.

India's new 12th man - Jarvo

When the man was asked to leave the ground by one of the ground staff members, he showed his jersey trying to claim that he was an Indian player. He was actually wearing India's latest jersey and also had the name 'Jarvo' printed behind the number 69 shirt.

The man literally enjoyed his moment in front of a huge Lord's crowd as he raised his hands and acknowledged everyone. Later, few security personnel ran onto the ground and took the fan away from the field.

Indian pacer Mohammed Siraj also couldn't control his smile while watching the sequence of events unfolding in front of him. The 27-year-old burst into laughter as everyone had a fun moment before play resumed for the all-important second session on Day 3.

English fan fired up Mohammed Siraj

Mohammed Siraj was one Indian player who really enjoyed the hilarious moment on the field and it seemed to have had a positive impact on his bowling. The right-arm pacer came out all guns blazing after that and executed the plan to dismiss Jonny Bairstow in a perfect way.

Bowling from round the wicket, Siraj fired in a lethal bouncer provoking the England batsman to play a pull or hook. Bairstow couldn't resist himself as he tried to play a shot, where he made a complete mess of it as the ball flew up in the air off his gloves, going straight into the hands of Virat Kohli as India got a crucial breakthrough.
