British PM Rishi Sunak Unhappy With Bairstow’s Dismissal: The Lord’s Test match played between England and Australia was very exciting. In the end, the Kangaroo team won this test by 43 runs. However, there is a lot of controversy regarding the wicket of Johnny Bairstow on the 5th day of the match. After the match, Australian captain Pat Cummins completely justified it, while England captain Ben Stokes called it against the spirit of the game. Now British PM Rishi Sunak has also entered in this matter, who has issued a statement in favor of his team.
Sharing his statement with the media, British PM Rishi Sunak’s spokesperson said that Bairstow’s controversial dismissal was completely contrary to the spirit of the game. The Prime Minister of England completely agrees with the statement of his team captain Ben Stokes, who said that he would not like to win any match in this manner like the Australian team. I am sure we will make a comeback in the Headingley Test.
Sunak also gave a statement on the incident in the long room
After the dismissal of Johnny Bairstow, the Australian team had to face the anger of the fans of the England team inside the stadium. At the same time, when the Kangaroo players were going through the long room of the Lord’s ground at lunch, there was a debate with some MCC members over their remarks.
Now on this incident, British PM Rishi Sunak said that MCC has taken a very right step by taking quick action in this incident. At the same time, he also described the standing ovation received by MCC members at the time of batting for Nathan Lyon as an example of sportsmanship. Regarding the innings of 155 runs by Ben Stokes in this match, the PM said that he got a chance to see one of the best innings of Stokes.
