Co-founder of the Barmy Army, Paul Burnham, has said the Barmy Army is “not happy” about the booing of Steve Smith at Lords.
“I think what Steve Smith had an amazing innings, he got hit by Jofra Archer and to come back out I thought was amazing,” Burnham said on Dan & Leigh for Breakfast.
“And not only should he have been applauded but he should have had a standing ovation as far as I’m concerned.”
Burnham did admit that Smith being out of the Third Test in Headingley was good for England's chances of reclaiming The Ashes .
“We’d much rather he’d play and figure out how to get him out and very disappointed with the Lords crowd.”
