The Lord’s Test between England and Australia was much talked about. Australia won the match by 43 runs and took a 0-2 lead in the Ashes series. In this match, England’s wicket-keeper batsman Jonny Bairstow sparked a controversy. Against this backdrop, former umpire of the International Cricket Council’s Elite Panel, Simon Taufel, gave his reaction.
In the historic Lord’s Test (Lord’s Test) in the last innings, the England team came to the pitch to reach the target of 371 runs. Jonny Bairstow looked set for a big innings after England lost early wickets in quick succession. However, he too lost his wicket in dramatic fashion. Bairstow immediately stepped forward, kneeling at the crease to speak to his teammate. But in the meantime, wicket-keeper Alex Carey made a stimping appeal for the wicket. The umpires also agreed that Bairstow was out. Bairstow was out by regulation. But according to cricket experts and former legends, this wicket goes against the player’s attitude.
Against this backdrop, veteran referee Simon Taufel gave a critical opinion. According to Taufel, when players are dismissed according to cricket rules, but they don’t like it, it is only when they talk about player attitude. “My experience has been that when there is a dismissal under the rules of cricket and they don’t like it, they cite sportsmanship,” Taufel said. Meanwhile, due to Bairstow’s wicket, there was a lot of discussion in the cricket world. Some felt that Bairstow was out, while others felt that the decision was wrong. This wicket was very expensive for the England team in the last innings.
Considering the Ashes 2023, the Australian team won the first match by 2 wickets and the second match by 43 runs. The third match of the series starts on Thursday (July 6) at the Headingley Stadium and the match could be decisive. This is Steve Smith’s 100th Test match. In this way, Smith can once again play a big role and help his team win the Ashes 2023 trophy. (Simon Taufel took aim at England supporters after Jonny Bairstow’s wicket dispute)
