Following England’s 107-run defeat in Centurion against South Africa, Jonny Bairstow was dropped from the playing XI of the ongoing second Test. However, cricketing action continues in Cape Town as both teams throw punches at each other in a gripping five-day contest. On Day 3 of the ongoing Test, Jonny Bairstow was seen using binoculars while watching the proceedings from the sidelines.
When England were 158-2 on Day 3 of the Test, Jonny Bairstow was seen using binoculars while sitting in the balcony of the dressing room. When Bairstow was using the same, official broadcasters Sky Sports took this opportunity to make fun of the cricketer. Whenever the English wicketkeeper-batsman used his binoculars, the camera panned to several beautiful ladies sitting amongst the crowd. The ladies were then seen waving with excitement after seeing themselves on the big screen. Check out the video of the same here.
Meanwhile, after gaining a 46-run first-innings lead over South Africa, England declared at 391-8 in their second innings. Dom Sibley top-scored with an unbeaten 133 and Ben Stokes was at his destructive best with a 47-ball 72. Stokes knock was studded with seven boundaries and three sixes. Captain Joe Root also played a crucial hand with 61 and he was involved in a 116-run third-wicket stand with Sibley. South Africa are now left to chase 438 to win the game and take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series.
