After Daniel Jarvis, popularly known as Jarvo 69, went in to stand guard at the fall of Rohit Sharma’s wicket on the third day of the ongoing third Test between India and England here on Friday, veteran off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin has asked him to leave the pitch.
Ashwin commended Rohit, skipper Virat Kohli, and Cheteshwar Pujara first, before praising Jarvo for not disturbing the pitch. “Today’s game was as good as it gets, with @ImRo45@cheteshwar1@imVkohli and Jaarvo displaying tremendous grit and intent! Continue on, fellas, and put an end to this, Jaarvo “Ashwin sent out a tweet.
After India’s opener Rohit Sharma was removed, the event occurred. Jarvis entered padded as a batsman and appeared to be ready to strike before security personnel rushed in and removed him.
Jarvo had already joined the Indian team as a fielder for the second Test, which took place earlier this month at Lord’s Cricket Ground. Returning to the game, Pujara (91*), Kohli (45*), and Rohit (59) all scored important runs as India reached 215/2 at Headingley on day three.
Pujara was going through a dry spell, and his fitness was being scrutinized. However, Rohit claimed that there was no “discussion” regarding Pujara’s form in the dressing room because the squad understands how vital a player he is.
Pujara hasn’t scored runs in a while, but the Indian opener said everyone should look at what he’s done for the visitors throughout the years.
“To be honest, there hasn’t been much discussion regarding Pujara’s batting abilities. I believe the discussions are only taking place outdoors. Inside the team locker room, Pujara has not had a single chat about his performance. We know what he delivers in terms of quality and experience. When you have a guy like that, I don’t think there’s much need for debate “In a virtual press conference, Rohit responded to a question from ANI.
“If you look at his recent performance, yeah, he hasn’t scored any runs, but at Lord’s, we saw a critical combination between him and Ajinkya. Not to mention what he accomplished in Australia. Those were critical innings in our historic Test series victory in Australia. We have a tendency to forget things, and our memories are a little hazy.
Consider what the man has accomplished throughout the years. It’s not about a single inning or a single series. It’s about what he’s done throughout his career,” Rohit continued.
