Jonny Bairstow Reply Virat Kohli Sledge with a Century
Jonny Bairstow was quite aggressive in scoring a century, although he started the innings at a slow pace, he was in a T20 mood when he hit a century. This sudden aggression of Jonny Bairstow is mainly due to the Virat Kohli sledge. On the second day of the match, Kohli was sledging with Bairstow.
Jonny Bairstow is having a great year in white ball cricket. This English batsman is going to run in the test. The continuity of which was maintained even against India. The right-handed batsman scored a great century in the first innings. He played 14 balls, 14 boundaries and 2 sixes in an innings of 108 runs.
Bairstow played 61 balls to make the first 13 runs. He then scored 36 off the next 20 balls to complete the fifth. And to complete the century, he played only 36 balls for the next 50 runs. The Indian star did the same on the third day. There was a time when English captain Ben Stokes came and stopped the argument. This was followed by the aggressive batting of Bairstow.
Needless to say, Bairstow’ aggressive century is the answer to Kohli’s sledging. Former Indian star Virender Sehwag tweeted about this. Before and after the sledging, as a striker, Bairstow was batting like Pujara, and Kohli made him a useless punt.
In one tweet, Bairstow wrote, “Playing like a worshiper, Kohli has made him (Johnny Bairstow) a pant, sledging unnecessarily.”
