Infamous British sport prankster ‘Jarvo 69’ hits the Cricket World Cup as he makes it past security and talks to India superstar Virat Kohli in Chennai after being banned from ALL UK sports stadiums for his Match of the Day porn noises stunt

  • British sport prankster ‘Jarvo 69’ hit the Cricket World Cup 
  • He made it past security in Chennai for India’s match vs Australia 
  • Jarvo – real name Daniel Jarvis – targets major sporting events 

The notorious sport prankster Jarvo – real name Daniel Jarvis – has struck again after invading the pitch at the Cricket World Cup.

Jarvis entered the field of play moments before Australia’s match with India got underway and spoke with superstar Virat Kohli before being escorted from the Chennai venue. 

The Englishman was sporting an India kit with ‘Jarvo 69’ printed on the back.

The match was reportedly sold out, but Jarvis managed to get his hands on a ticket for the highly-anticipated clash between the host nation and the five-time winners.

Jarvis’s antics caused the ECB to launch a security review in 2021 when he disrupted three consecutive Test matches between England and India.

The BBC also carried out an investigation this year after Jarvis managed to get into Wolverhampton Wanderers’ Molineux stadium and tape a mobile to furniture on set.

Jarvis then called the phone from his home, with its ringtone – noises from a porn clip – sounding as Gary Lineker introduced the live FA Cup match between Wolves and Liverpool to an audience of millions.

The embarrassing moaning noises began shortly after the Match of the Day’s coverage started on BBC1, leaving the pundits visibly confused and viewers incredulous, especially those watching with children.

Lineker said afterwards that it was a ‘good prank’ and quite amusing, and that the BBC should not have to apologise. But the fact Jarvis was able to get on to a set and plant a phone raises major security questions over the corporation’s outside broadcasts.

Jarvis, from Gravesend, Kent, whose multiple pitch invasions have led to arrests, posted a picture of himself outside the studio as it was being built in recent days.

A judge handed Jarvis, who has 21 convictions for multiple stunts, a two-year ban from all UK sports stadiums last September after he disrupted an England test match a year earlier when he ran on the pitch and crashed into talisman Jonny Bairstow.

But the ban is only in force in the hour before kick off until an hour after the match ends, so he went to Molineux yesterday afternoon instead.

He told The Sun: ‘We did a cheers with the beers after getting out of there. It was hilarious. At that point we didn’t know we’d nailed it as there was still some time to wait.’

‘In those situations, you just want to be as relaxed as possible and be yourself, so that’s what we did.’
