London: A fan in an India’s Test jersey walked out with Virat Kohli & co as play was about to start after Lunch on Day three of the second Test between England and India at Lord’s.
Just as the Indian cricketers stepped onto the field for the second session, cameras spotted a man wearing the Indian Test uniform with ‘Jarvo’ written on his back, walking out with them.
When security personnel asked him to leave the field, he pointed to the BCCI logo on his jersey, leaving a couple of Indian players Ravindra Jadeja and Mohammed Siraj in splits.
