ENG vs AUS: WATCH – Jonny Bairstow gets out hit-wicket off Mitchell Starc’s bowling in a bizarre way

During the 2nd T20I between England and Australia at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton, Jonny Bairstow‘s bizarre dismissal was the centre of attraction for the spectators.

Earlier, Australian captain Aaron Finch won the toss and elected to bat first. They were put into a precariously placed situation, with the score reading at 30-3 in five overs.

The visitors threw in a substantial rear-guard action to take the Australian total to 157/7. For England, Chris Jordan was the pick of the bowlers as he scalped the prized wickets of Aaron Finch (40) and Glenn Maxwell (26).

Coming out to bat, Bairstow looked at sea while facing Mitchell Starc in the first over of England innings.

Starc’s second over saw Bairstow attacking the express pacer with a couple of boundaries. However, in the fifth delivery of the over, Bairstow attempted a pull shot which he missed completely.

Bairstow’s follow-through with the bat took out a large chunk of the stumps behind him as the Aussies celebrated the hit-wicket dismissal.

Here’s the video:

The Jos Buttler Show

Bairstow’s opening partner, Jos Buttler, at the other end, played a magnificent knock for his team. The Aussies had no answer to Buttler’s rapid 54-ball 77*, which took the hosts across the finishing line.

He first laid a solid foundation for the run-chase, by adding a crucial partnership of 90 runs with Dawid Malan (42) for the second wicket. Aussies kept themselves in the contest by picking wickets at regular intervals.

Moreover, the cameo from Moeen Ali (13* off 6) proved to be a final nail in the coffin for Australia. Buttler finished the game with a massive hit over the fence.

England won the match by six wickets and took an unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-match T20I series. Buttler was adjudged as the ‘Player of the Match’ for his breathtaking knock.

ENG vs AUS: Netizens troll England for taking a DRS after Aaron Finch middles the ball

England comfortably sealed the three-match T20I series in their favour with the second consecutive victory against Australia at the Rose Bowl on Sunday.

Batting first, Australia finished their innings on 157/7 in twenty overs. Jofra Archer and Mark Wood set the tone straight away with a stellar demonstration of pace, hostility and accuracy.

Chasing 158, England’s middle-order almost made a mountain out of a molehill, but Jos Buttler stood firm at one end.

Buttler came up with a well-measured innings where he didn’t rely solely on his hitting prowess. He worked out in singles and doubles, did the rebuilding job in the middle and occasionally exploded to keep the required run-rate in check.

Buttler’s unbeaten 77 helped England cruised past the target with seven balls to spare.

Apart from his match-winning knock, England’s wicket-keeping batsman was also involved in taking perhaps the most absurd review, ever since the introduction of Decision Review System (DRS).

In the seventh over of the match, Adil Rashid bowled a regular leg-break to Aaron Finch, who was anchoring Australia’s innings after a terrible start. Finch brought his front foot in line and simply blocked the delivery.

However, Buttler thought that the ball hit the pad first and thus instigated his skipper Eoin Morgan to go for a review. But, the replays clearly showed that Finch blocked it with the middle of his willow.

In the end, Buttler did realise his blunder and spotted a wry smile. The netizens took notice of this incident and brutally trolled the England side.

Here are some of the funniest tweets:
