Notably, Bairstow was stumped by Australian wicketkeeper Alex Carey on Day 5 of the second Ashes Test – while the Englishman left his crease anticipating end the over, but was adjudged out by the third-umpire.

”The Prime Minister agrees with Ben Stokes. He said he simply wouldn’t win a game in that manner,” UK PM spokesperson said in an official statement.
Meanwhile, England head coach and man behind ‘Bazball’ cricket, Brendan McCullum claimed that Alex Carey will regret his decision. “You will forever be remembered for this,” Stuart Broad told Carey after after England pacer came out in the middle to bat.
