Ashwin Applauds Game Smarts Over Unfair Play in Support of Carey’s Controversial Run-Out

<p>On the last day of the second Ashes Test, veteran Indian off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin backed Alex Carey’s decision to run out a roving Jonny Bairstow. Ashwin has regularly faced unjustified criticism for ejecting batsmen for retreating too far at the non-striker’s end. Australia took a 2-0 lead after winning the second Test at Lord’s by 43 runs. However, there was a lot of controversy when Bairstow (10), who was going to pair with captain Ben Stokes (155), evaded a slow bouncer from Cameron Green and walked away from the wicket after thinking the ball was already “dead.”<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-56544″ src=”” alt=”” width=”1132″ height=”618″ srcset=” 304w,×82.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 1132px) 100vw, 1132px” /></p>
<p>The stumping of Jonny Bairstow by Alex Carey is now being discussed throughout the cricket world. Bairstow left the bouncer Josh Hazlewood had delivered without even looking at the Australian wicketkeeper as he sent the ball towards the stumps.</p>
<p>The batsman was ruled out by the third umpire after being deemed short. Numerous reactions followed, some of which were critical of the Australians.</p>
<p>The visitors also found aid on the opposite side. R Ashwin, a mankading competitor, endorsed the Pat Cummins-coached side.</p>
<p>One thing has to be understood clearly.</p>
<p>Unless he or his team had seen a trend of the batsman leaving his crease after leaving a ball as Bairstow did, the keeper would never have a dip at the stumps from that distance in a test match.</p>
