Ben Stokes Has Hit Back At An Australian Newspaper Which Pictured Him As A Crybabies Ashes 2023 England Vs Australia Lord’s Test

Ben Stokes Has Hit Back At An Australian Newspaper: Since the Lord’s Test match between England and Australia, the debate over the controversial dismissal of Johnny Bairstow has reached a different level. After the Australian team was targeted by the English media institutions, now the Australian media has also targeted the England team captain Ben Stokes. Regarding this, Stokes has also tried to answer in his own way on social media.

Australian newspaper The West Australian has published a photo of Ben Stokes on the front page of his paper as a crying child, who has a nipple of a milk bottle on his mouth. Commenting on this photo, Stokes tweeted and wrote that it cannot be me at all. When did I start bowling with the new ball?

The reason behind this photo was Ben Stokes criticizing Johnny Bairstow for his wicket after the match. Stokes said in his statement that if he was the captain of the fielding team at that time, he would have withdrawn the appeal.

Johnny was in his crease and then got out

During the post-match press conference, Ben Stokes said on the question asked about Bairstow’s dismissal, since when was it decided that the umpires would announce the completion of the over. Did the on-field umpires make a movement, was it a deciding over? I do not know. Johnny was in his crease and then came out. I do not want to contest the fact that he was given out.

In his statement, Stokes further said that if the bet was on the other side, I would have put more pressure on the umpires and asked whether they had announced the end of the over or not. I used to think seriously about the spirit of sportsmanship and at the same time I would think, do I want to do this? Do I want to win matches like this? I would not have answered.
