Video of MS Dhoni resurfaces after Jonny Bairstow controversy


On Day 5 of the second Ashes Test, Jonny Bairstow was dismissed under unusual circumstances.

In the final ball of the 52nd over, he avoided a bouncer from Cameron Green. When the wicketkeeper-batter realised the ball was dead, he departed his crease. Alex Carey, his opposing number, surprised him by under-arming the ball through to the stumps and catching him short of his crease.

The umpires ruled that the ball was still in play, forcing Bairstow to return to the pavilion after being stumped by a pace bowler.

Similar to Jonny Bairstow incident?

Following the incident, an old video of MS Dhoni recalling Ian Bell from the second Test at Trent Bridge in 2011 was revived. Ian Bell thought he hit a boundary on the final ball before tea. Praveen Kumar, on the other hand, managed to save the boundary with a dive. He returned the ball, and Bell was caught short of his crease.

The England batter had already stepped off, mistaking the ball for a boundary. Replays revealed that the ball did not make it to the barrier, and Bell was given out.

However, Indian skipper MS Dhoni opted to withdraw the appeal and reintroduce Bell to the crease. Back then, he was praised for his bravery.

On Day 5, England captain Ben Stokes put on a show, scoring his 13th Test century while chasing 371 in the fourth innings. He was able to offer England hope of tying the series. However, once he was dismissed for a stunning 155-run performance, the Australian bowlers made easy work of the tailenders, winning by 43 runs.

With this victory, Australia moved one step closer to retaining the prized Ashes urn, as they now lead the five-Test series 2-0 with three games remaining.

The third Test, scheduled for July 6, will be held in Headingley, Leeds.
