The South London Police arrested YouTuber Daniel Jarvis on Friday after he entered the Oval arena during the pre-lunch session on the second day of the fourth Test. Jarvis has gained fame for breaking security at will throughout the ongoing India against England series.
Jarvis, also known as ‘Jarvo69,’ has been impersonating an Indian player on a regular basis, and Friday was the third time in three games that he took advantage of the England & Wales Cricket Board’s
“Yes, Jarvo69 has been arrested by South London police,” a BCCI source familiar with the situation informed PTI.
Penalty And LifeTime Ban From Stadium
He was arrested on suspicion of assaulting English batsman Jonny Bairstow during the day, according to reports. Yorkshire County Council had agreed to fine him and ban him for life, but the ECB has made no concrete promises.
Jarvo was observed sprinting just as Umesh Yadav was on top of his bowling mark after attempting to set field at Lord’s and taking stance at Leeds. He did contact with Jonny Bairstow, a non-striker. The stewards ejected him from the field once more, but the ECB has yet to issue a public apology, despite one guy making a mockery of its security system.
There have been concerns about how the ECB’s security team, as well as the British media, would have handled such a significant security breach if it had occurred at any of India’s cricket stadiums.
The administrative and security officers of the Indian team is keeping a careful eye on the serial offender, but will not submit an official complaint about him just yet.
