The fourth Test match between India and England was disrupted once again on Day 2 by a pitch invader at The Oval in London, when Daniel Jarvis, commonly known as Jarvo, rushed into the stadium. Jarvo, who had already entered the field twice in the current Test series at Lord's and Leeds, was banned from Headingley Cricket Ground for life.
Jarvo intruded once again in the 34th over of England's first innings. He ran past Umesh Yadav and collided with batsman Jonny Bairstow. He then let go of the ball as Bairstow stared in amazement. He was taken off the ground by security personnel.
Based on the sources, after the incident at the Oval Cricket Ground on Friday, Jarvo was detained on suspicion of assault. He is still being held at a police station in south London.
