SA vs Eng

England cricketer Jonny Bairstow was seen using binoculars while watching his team play against South Africa from the sidelines. Official broadcasters Sky Sports made use of this opportunity to make fun of the cricketer. Whenever Jonny Bairstow used the binoculars, the camera panned to several ladies sitting in the crowd. Even though the broadcaster hilariously jibed Jonny Bairstow for fun, not everyone saw the funny side of the cheeky move by Sky Sports.
