Jarvo is back and this time he has appeared at the World Cup! Also known as Daniel Jarvis, the English national is a YouTuber who rose to fame in 2021 for invading three of India’s matches against England.

Footage of Jarvo invading Chepauk’s field during India’s first World Cup match went viral on the internet. In several pictures circulated on social media platforms, Jarvo was seen chatting with Kohli, who apparently seemed disappointed over the disturbance caused during such an important match. He was then escorted off the ground by security personnel at Chepauk. There is no video of the incident, however, Jarvo was seen wearing the Indian blue uniform with his usual jersey number: 69.
This was the fourth time Jarvo had invaded an international match involving India. In 2021, when the team traveled to England for a Test series, Jarvo made his first appearance in the Lord’s tie, where he posed as an Indian player even as security personnel sought to escort him off the ground. In fact, the sight had left some players divided.
In the next match, at Leeds, Jarvo came out to bat at No. 4 ahead of Kohli, while in the fourth Test, at the Kennington Oval, the YouTuber bowled as a fast bowler while colliding with Jonny Bairstow. .
After an impressive start to the World Cup in India, the host nation made its appearance in front of a packed Chepauk crowd for the crucial first match against five-time champions Australia. Australia captain Pat Cummins won the toss and opted to bat first amid the hot and humid conditions in Chennai.
Rohit confirmed that Shubman Gill is missing the match due to dengue and Ishan Kishan has replaced him in the playing XI. India also had three spinners in the playing XI, implying that Ravichandran Ashwin has been picked at number 8 given the dry conditions in Chennai, which will subsequently also add batting depth to the Indian team.
