Sept 4 (SkyNews) – Pitch invader Daniel ‘Jarvo’ Jarvis was arrested on Friday after an on-field collision with England batsman Jonny Bairstow during day two of the fourth Test at The Kia Oval.
Jarvis, a self-styled YouTube prankster with 123,000 subscribers, had previously walked out with the India team at Lord’s and appeared in full batting kit at Emerald Headingley.
His third appearance of the series took things a step further, though, as he ran in to bowl at Ollie Pope and crashed into an unsuspecting Bairstow at the non-striker’s end.
Bairstow held his ground but was clearly surprised at the incident and there was clear agitation among the Indian team, with captain Virat Kohli seen in close conversation with the umpires after Jarvis was led off the pitch.
A statement from the Metropolitan Police read: “A man has been arrested on suspicion of assault following an incident at the Oval Cricket Ground on Friday, 3 September. He remains in custody at a south London police station.”
