England vs Australia, Ashes 2023: The second Test match of the Ashes series 2023 being played between England and Australia at Lord’s ground has reached a very exciting situation. On the 5th day of the game, English wicket-keeper batsman Johnny Bairstow returned to the pavilion after being run out in a strange way. Bairstow also looked very angry at the way he was dismissed. The finesse of Australian wicketkeeper Alex Carey played an important role in sending Bairstow to the pavilion.
During the first session of the fifth day’s play, Johnny Bairstow returned to the pavilion after being run out in the 52nd over of the England team. Cameron Green, bowling for Australia, was continuously throwing short pitch balls. In such a situation, soon after he left the last ball of the over, Bairstow went out of the crease. Meanwhile, Alex Carey hit the ball straight on the wicket as soon as he caught it.
When the ball hit the wicket, Bairstow was far out of the crease and in such a situation the decision was sent to the third umpire with an appeal for his dismissal. When Bairstow was given out, his displeasure was clearly visible from his face. He returned to the pavilion after playing an inning of 10 runs in 22 balls.
