The Lord’s Test between England and Australia was a well contested one. Australia won the second match of the Ashes 2023 by 43 runs to take a crucial 2-0 lead in the series. The way Jonny Bairstow was run out on the final day of the match has created a lot of discussion. Now former England cricketer Geoffrey Boycott has reacted to it.
Cameron Green bowled the last ball bouncer just before the end of the first session of the final day. Jonny Bairstow, who was batting, dropped the ball and continued. However, Australian wicketkeeper Alex Carey threw the ball directly at the wickets after receiving the ball. The Australian players made a strong appeal. As the on-field umpires did not understand exactly what had happened, he was dismissed after appealing to the third umpire. However, Bairstow stood out, thinking the over was over.
There has been a lot of discussion on this issue for two days. On this, former England cricketer Geoffrey Boycott has directly given moral lessons to the Australian team. He said,
“I have always seen our team as a bitter rival and a fair team. However, if the Australian team has any humanity left, they will issue a public apology over the matter.”
Recounting some incidents from his career, he also spoke about how the Australian team had avoided such controversies by showing sportsmanship. Currently, this case is well known in the cricket circle. Many said the Australian team should have shown more sportsmanship. So, some even said that Bairstow acted irresponsibly.
