English Cricketer Does His Ankle Walking Out To Bat

Embarrassing stuff

England wicketkeeper/batsman Jonny Bairstow has somehow managed to injure his ankle on the trip from the dressing room to the pitch.

Walking out with Ben Stokes to continue the England innings — they were 5/103 overnight after bowling out India for 455 — Bairstow seemed to trip over his own feet and injure his ankle.

He limped off for treatment before making it out in time for the first ball.


Bairstow’s face would have been almost as red as his hair after the incident, and it’s arguably even more embarrassing that he was fine to continue batting.
