The fifth match of the ODI World Cup 2023 between India and Australia went underway at Chennai’s MA Chidambaram stadium on Sunday, October 8. As the stage was set for an epic showdown, with India asked to field first and cricket enthusiasts eagerly glued to their screens, the match took an unusual twist as ‘Jarvo 69’ made his notorious presence felt once again by invading the pitch.

Who is ‘Jarvo 69’?

Jarvo has become a household name in the cricketing world, albeit for all the wrong reasons. His audacious pitch invasions have made headlines on multiple occasions. Notably, he first burst onto the scene on August 28, 2021, during the second Test match between England and India. From there, he continued his pitch invasion spree, disrupting subsequent Test matches at Leeds and Lord’s. His antics even led to his arrest on suspicion of assault after a collision with England batter Jonny Bairstow on one occasion.

It now appears that legal repercussions did not deter Jarvo as he repeated a similar act by invading the field during the India-Australia ODI World Cup 2023 match at Chepauk Stadium while donning an Indian jersey. Pictures of this incident rapidly spread across the internet.

Fans come up with mixed reactions

Fans reacted passionately to Jarvo’s latest escapade and their responses were as diverse as the cricketing world itself. Some found his actions amusing, while many fans were dismayed by Jarvo’s antics. They argued that such pranks had no place in a serious sporting event like the ODI World Cup, where teams had trained rigorously, and fans had eagerly awaited matches. The disruption, they felt, detracted from the true spirit of cricket and could even affect the players’ focus.
