The two days long drama ended few hours before the toss on Friday when the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) confirmed that India was not ready to take the field for the 5th test against England following a Covid-19 case in tourists camp.
The pitch-invader Jarvo 69, who entered the field 3 times without permission during the Test series between India and England, is being seen as a conspirator behind the cancellation of India vs England 5th Test at Old Trafford.
Moments after the fifth Test was cancelled, Jarvo hit top trends on Twitter, with fans pointing ECB’s negligence in crowd management. Twitter was flooded with comments Jarvo was responsible for cancellation of the India-England 5th Test.
Jarvo is being targeted by the social media users for the mess between India and England. Taking to twitter, tweeple are making serious allegation on Jarvo.
Jarvo, who wears Team India jersey with the number 69, thrice interrupted the proceedings in the test series. For which, he has been arrested and awarded a lifetime ban from entering Headingly stadium.
The real name of ‘Jarvo’ is Daniel Jarvis. He describes himself as a fan of the Indian cricket team and has dared to enter the pitch three times without permission in the last 3 Tests between India and England.
Jarvo, a YouTube prankster with 1,27,000 subscribers on his channel named BMWJarvo, had entered the field at Lord’s with a ball in his hand during the 4th test of 5-match series and had also tried to bowl to Ollie Pope but crashed into Bairstow at the non-strikers end. Bairstow was visibly furious and tried to keep Jarvo away from himself. Jarvo was eventually escorted off the field by security staff at the stadium.
In Headingley, Jarvo entered the pitch wearing pads, a helmet, and a bat. This led to the Yorkshire County Club banning him from entering the stadium for a lifetime. At Lord’s, he had entered the outfield posing as an Indian bowler.
In a statement, the ECB had said that any pitch invasion is completely unacceptable. The board did not tolerate any such behaviour which risks the safety of players, an ECB spokesperson said.
Meanwhile, Friday’s match was thrown in doubt after India physiotherapist Yogesh Parmar had tested Covid positive on Thursday.
