While it was expected that Jarvo might not make an appearance at the Oval during the 4th Test, given that he had already tested his luck twice, the second day saw him coming on the pitch and stopping play as Umesh Yadav was going to bowl a ball.

Jarvo 69 had a ball in his hand and managed to deliver it reaching the pitch in the process and then bumped into England batsman Jonny Bairstow, who was startled to see him on the pitch. Though the security was able to remove him from the ground, many cricket experts and former India cricketers were not happy with this repeated breach of security and slammed the ECB for their lackluster arrangements.
