Jarvo strikes again: India managed to establish themselves firmly in the driver’s seat as England lost two early wickets on day 2 of the fourth Test.
Umesh Yadav struck early as he scalped Dawid Malan and Craig Overton on the second day of the play.
However, England batted strongly after the fall of the third wicket, as the partnership of Jonny Bairstow and Ollie Pope managed to stitch together a comprehensive partnership and inch closer to India’s first innings total.
The drama surrounding Jarvo
It was in the third ball of the 33rd over when the star attraction of the two preceding games came back. With Umesh Yadav preparing to bowl the third ball of the over, Jarvo charged in and slammed into Bairstow at the non-striker’s end.
This is not the first time that the YouTuber has made guest appearances in the India and England series, but this has now become a worrisome pattern as he easily evades the security to reach the focal point of action.
Things seemed toothless until now, but today’s collision with Bairstow popped a few eyeballs as the English fans were not amused at all.

The consequences faced by the YouTuber
In an extraneous claim, Jarvo mentioned that he has transformed into an Indian fan and will be cheering for them in the upcoming T20 World Cup.
His theatrics also earned him a ban at the Headingley and a fine by the Yorkshire county. With the situation of a raging pandemic still looming around, things aren’t looking funny anymore.
India managed to garner 191 runs in the first innings, thanks to a late effort from Shardul Thakur
The Indian bowlers started well as Bumrah struck twice early to remove the opening pair for cheap. Umesh Yadav bagged the priceless wicket of Joe Root with an absolute jaffa.
