In the second Test match of the Ashes 2023 series, England faced a defeat by 4 wickets. In this match, Jonny Bairstow was dismissed by wicketkeeper Alex Carey as he went out of the crease. This issue was a matter of debate. Then Bairstow was very careful not to make any mistakes in the third Test. When he came to bat, he was cautious after playing the ball.
What exactly happened?
It so happened that whenever an over ended or the ball was ducked in the third Test, Jonny Bairstow stayed inside the crease till the end. He would come out of the crease only when the over ended and the players changed positions. Seeing his action, the Australian players were also seen laughing and having fun. Also, Smith and Alex Carey were seen poking fun at Bairstow’s act. This video is going viral on social media and fans are enjoying it.
