London: England’s Bairstow’s dismissal on the last day of the 2nd Test of the ongoing Ashes series was controversial. In this case, Geoffrey Boycott said that the Australian team should apologize for that.
Bairstow, who was on strike, walked away from the crease during the match at Lord’s with the ball deemed dead. Then Australia’s wicketkeeper Alex Carey smashed the stumps. He was then declared out. It is a matter of debate in the cricketing world. Geoffrey Boycott has said this in this context.
“We want cricket to be played fairly. Mankat environment in the field is different. But, Bairstow was definitely not trying to get a run at that time. There should have been some thought before doing so in such an environment.
We all make mistakes. But, it is necessary to feel it. The Australian team should consider what they have done. And apologize. That will fix it. And it is possible to pass from this,” said Boycott.
