The third match of the prestigious Ashes Test series begins on Thursday (July 6) at Headingley. Having lost the first two matches of the series, hosts England will look to bounce back from this match. On the other hand, Australia will be trying to win the match and clinch the series. Meanwhile, Australian captain Pat Cummins has made a very important statement in the pre-match press conference.
The final day of the second Test of the series at Lord’s witnessed a huge controversy. Australia was accused of unsportsmanlike conduct when running out Jonny Bairstow. After that, former players, fans and Prime Ministers of both the countries were also seen expressing themselves on the matter. A similar question was put to Cummins in the press conference before the third Test.
Would you dismiss a player the way you dismissed Bairstow in the second Test, given the opportunity again? He was asked such a question. To which he replied yes in just one word. So now there is a possibility of seeing a big fight again in this third match.
During the first session of the fifth day of the Lord’s Test, Jonny Bairstow, who was batting as Cameron Green bowled, 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. After the on-field umpire appealed to the third umpire, they dismissed Bairstow. In this, many said that the Australian team should have shown sportsmanship and invited him to bat again. So, some blamed Bairstow for coming out of the crease irresponsibly.
