Daniel Jarvis, aka ‘Jarvo 69’ has been arrested on charges of assault on day 2 of the Oval Test between India and England. The YouTuber, who gained fame for his antics, once again managed to make his way onto the pitch on Friday.
As Umesh Yadav was getting into his bowling stride, Daniel Jarvis ran onto the pitch and bowled a delivery of his own before barging into England batsman Jonny Bairstow at the non-striker’s end.
However, as per recent reports, he has been arrested on charges of sexual assault and remains in police custody at a south London Police station.

Daniel Jarvis made his first appearance at Lord’s, being forced off the pitch as he prepared for a bowling run-up. Then, during the third Test in Leeds, he came out all padded up after India lost their second wicket. While his prank seemed to amuse viewers in the second Test, it has turned out to be irritating for the viewers after his third attempt.

England middle-order toiled with Indian bowlers on a flat deck to secure a crucial lead in the first innings. Despite losing nightwatchman Craig Overton early, Ollie Pope showed exemplary grit and determination to hold one end tight.
He stitched crucial partnerships with Jonny Bairstow, Moeen Ali, and Chris Woakes to propel the home side to 290 runs. Pope chipped in with 81 runs before Chris Woakes played a valiant knock of 50 runs to put Joe Root & Co on top.
India will want a big opening partnership from Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul as they aim to post a big total for England in the fourth innings.
