The India vs England Test series is proving to be an exciting banter for the cricketing fans. From the excellence of Joe Root to the determination shown by Indian bowlers, surely the 3rd Test is living up to the hype of the series so far. However, amid the nerve-racking tension among cricket fans at Headingley, a comical incident happened when ‘Jarvo 69’ once again appeared to run onto the pitch.
Those who are not aware, Daniel Jarvis- who is also known as Jarvo 69- had run onto the pitch disguised as an Indian fielder during the side's second Test against England at Lord's as well. Even so, during the 3rd Test match at Headingley, Jarvis returned, but this time as the Indian number 4 batsman. To add to the fun, Jarvis got onto the field wearing the entire attire including a helmet, gloves and pads. The only thing missing would be his batting display.

A similar funny moment had occurred in the second Test match at Lord’s, when Jarvis- a local fan- made his way donning an Indian jersey onto the ground. What was even more spectacular, that this invasion even left the commentators and Indian players (Ravindra Jadeja and Mohammad Siraj) in splits, especially when Jarvo 69 started giving Virat Kohli fielding instructions.
Now in the crucial 3rd Test as well, Just when India lost Rohit Sharma right after the Tea break courtesy to Ollie Robinson, Indian fans were expecting the captain Virat Kohli to come to the batting crease. Yet they were stunned to see Jarvis returning to lighten the mood of cricketing fans.
Having said that, the intruder was once again dragged out by the security personnel as he almost made his way through onto the pitch. Talking about the 3rd Test, India have firmly made their way into the match after being bundled out for 78 in their first innings. Rohit Sharma’s determined knock of 59 runs from 156 balls has surely brought the guests into the match, with Cheteshwar Pujara also looking to improve upon his inconsistent run.
