Chennai: The match between India and Australia in the World Cup series took place yesterday at the Chepauk Stadium. Shortly before the start of the match, a person wearing the jersey of the Indian team named ‘Jarvo 69’ suddenly ran into the stadium for a few minutes.
The Rohit Sharma-led Indian team played their first league match in the ICC One Day Cricket World Cup series against 5-time champions Australia at the MA Chidambaram Stadium, Cheppak, Chennai yesterday. The match was scheduled to start at 2 o’clock and at 1.50 the players of both the teams entered the stadium for the national anthem. A man wearing an Indian team jersey with the name Jharvo emblazoned on it trespassed into the stadium as the players were tiring out after the national anthem was over.
The security guards stopped the man who ran towards Virat Kohli. However, the man defied the security guards and spoke to Virat Kohli and Siraj for a few seconds. The security guards then escorted him out of the stadium. The man caused a frenzy on the field minutes before the start of the match.
who is he? – Daniel Jarvis, also known as Jarvo, is a YouTube channel owner. The YouTube channel run by Daniel Jarvis, known as Jarvo, has over 1.23 lakh subscribers. Jarvo’s intention is not to trouble the players, but to congratulate them. He interacts with them and engages in such activities to attract everyone’s attention.
An ardent cricket fan, Jarvo was born in Canada but lives in England. Jarvo, who is an ardent fan of the Indian team, has a habit of entering the stadium during the Indian team’s matches and pretending to be an Indian team player and acting like other players on the field.
In September 2021, the Indian team traveled to England and played a Test series. At that time he used to come regularly in all Test matches and enter the ground like this and cause some disturbance. Jarvo once tried to set fielding while wearing the jersey of the Indian team.
Another time, this Jarvo did not fail to confuse the Indian players by wearing a bat, helmet, clothes and mask like an Indian batsman. At one point the Englishman tried to bowl to Pope and collided with wicketkeeper batsman Bairstow. Bairstow and Jarvo then had a minor altercation before the umpire stopped and called the guards. This stopped the game for 5 minutes. Following this, the British police arrested him.
This Jharvo’s chat now extends to Chepakkam, Chennai. All the fans are filming Jarvo’s pranks and commenting that Jarvo is here too.
Beyond the joke, the ICC has banned Jarvo from the ongoing World Cup in India. “We will prioritize the safety of everyone participating in the 2023 ICC Cricket World Cup. We will understand what happened and take additional security measures to prevent it from happening again. The person involved in the controversy is banned from entering the World Cup stadiums. Now it is up to the Indian authorities to stop him,” said an ICC spokesperson in an interview.
