Stuart Broad blasts senior Australian players for dismissing Jonny Bairstow in the second Ashes Test. Jonny Bairstow stump in contentious circumstances by Australian wicketkeeper Alex Carey.
The England pacer Stuart Broad is plainly upset with the Australian cricket team’s tactics after they won the Lord’s Test match. The issue start when Jonny Bairstow was removed by the visiting stumper, Alex Carey, in an unusual manner on the final day of play. Notably, Bairstow was out of the crease because he mistook the ball for a dead ball.
The departure of English wicketkeeper Bairstow had an impact on the game. The Ben Stokes-led side lost the second Test match by 43 runs. Similarly, Broad remark that Jonny’s dismissal on Day 5 of the Test match plainly offended the “Spirit of the Game.” The veteran English bowler plainly mock older players, believing that following the 2018 ball-tampering controversy, they would value the game’s integrity.
“I just kept repeating to Pat, ‘All these boos are for you, for your decision.'” ‘And what a wonderful opportunity you have to think clearly. “That’s all you’ll be remembered for,” Broad said, according to the Daily Mail.
“What amazed me, and what I told the Australians as we left the field at lunch. That not a single senior player questioned what they had done. ” Especially considering all their squad has been through in recent years with all of their cultural transformation. ‘Hold on, fellas,’ none of them said. ‘I’m not sure about this.’ “Not one of them thought,” England quickly concluded.
