The intruder in the now-famous fan 'Jarvo 69' came alive yet again on the third day of the third Test between India and England, at Headingley, Leeds, on Friday

This time he entered the playing arena in batting gear.

 

Earlier, he walked his way into Lord's on Day 4 of the second Test between the two teams and acted as if he was setting the field for the Indian team, leaving spectators and viewers in splits.

At Lord's, the fan, who claims to be a popular prankster, walked in casually in an Indian jersey, with his name on the back.

He was escorted out after being spotted.

After that he revealed how Ravindra Jadeja and Mohammed Siraj reacted after spotting him.

Siraj and Jadeja could barely control their laughter before the man was escorted off by the security personnel.

On Friday, too, he made an intrusion after opener Rohit Sharma was dismissed in the final session of play, even as India tried to stage a comeback in the match.

This time he wore a surgical mask under his helmet before security personnel escorted him out of the ground.
