- English test match with India was interrupted on Friday by a pitch invader
- The assailant pretended to be on India’s team and walked out ready to bat
- England’s Jonny Bairstow was furious with the man and kicked a glove at him
- The pitch invader is named Daniel Jarvis and has a history of high profile stunts
The third Test between England and India was interrupted on Friday by a pitch invader – the same fan who took to the field during the second Test at Lords.
The fan, who wore ‘Jarvo 69’ on the back of his shirt and was fully clothed, including pads, helmet and a bat, reached the field before being met by two guards and marching off the field.
While the crowd was entertained by his antics, England’s Jonny Bairstow was unimpressed and kicked a batting glove at the intruder while yelling at him.

England and India players were already familiar with the perpetrator, whose real name is Daniel Jarvis and who is known for pulling pranks at sporting events.
He walked onto the field in the third Test wearing India’s kit while Joe Root was in formidable batting form, trying to blend in with the rest of the fielders before finally being led away by Lords security personnel.
Jarvis was one of three pitch invaders who came onto the White Hart Lane field during a 2014 Europa League match between Tottenham and Partizan Belgrade and attempted to snap a selfie with Spurs striker Roberto Soldado.
He was arrested for handling stolen goods and released on bail.
Jarvis was jailed in 2016 for a mock robbery at the National Portrait Gallery in London, along with two other pranksters in a video for YouTube channel Trollstation.
