Ashes 2023 Lord’s 2nd Test ENG Vs AUS England Wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow Out Controversy And Reaction Some Says Out Some Not Out

Reactions on Jonny Bairstow’s wicket: The second Test of Ashes 2023 was played at Lord’s in London, in which Australia won by 43 runs. In the fourth innings of this match, the wicket of English batsman Johnny Bairstow remained in discussions. Bairstow was dismissed by Australian wicketkeeper Alex Carey in a very unique way. Actually, Bairstow came out of the crease without playing a shot and Carey got him out by throwing from behind the wicket.

Ruckus started on this wicket of Bairstow. Former cricketers and experts are presenting their opinion regarding Bairstow’s wicket. The cricket world is divided into two parts on this wicket. First of all, the England captain himself said on this, “If I was the fielding captain at that time, I would have put more pressure on the umpires to ask them what their decision was around the over. Then I would think of ‘sportsmanship’. If I am asked whether I would like to win matches with such things. My answer would be no.

At the same time, on this wicket, Australian captain Pat Cummins supported it, saying, “I think Carey had seen a few balls before, there was no obstruction, he caught the ball and threw it straight. I think it was a fair game, that’s the rule, some people won’t agree with that but like yesterday’s catch, the rule is there and that’s how I saw it.”

Reacting to this, former Australian cricketer Brad Hogg has called it not out. He tweeted and wrote, “Bairstow wicket, not out. The spirit of cricket was pushed to the limit. Not trying to run away, finish the over, scratch the crease (stay) and then go on to have regular BS chat between overs between the batsmen.” Here’s the reaction on Bairst’s wicket…
