England v India

‘Jarvo’ interrupts Test match once more, bumps into Jonny Bairstow

by Wisden Staff 5 minute read

‘Jarvo’, the pitch invader who has grown in infamy during the ongoing Test series between England and India, caused another stoppage in play and day two of The Oval Test.

The intruder was seen at both Lord’s and Headingley and interrupted the morning session of the fourth Test while Jonny Bairstow and Ollie Pope were batting

Running onto the field from the Vauxhall End, ‘Jarvo’ – sporting full whites –ran towards the pitch and bowled a ball, and bumped into Bairstow too.

He was soon escorted off the field and was met with criticism online.
