The run out is why I just don't trust Bairstow, he does things like that far too often.

36 runs? Surely we can get that without further heart attack!

Itís because he has a tendency to get too intense and becomes too frenetic.

My friend met Bairstow years ago at a house party. It was when he was just breaking into the England team. Whenever anyone spoke to him, he would apparently say "I would introduce myself, but you already know who I am".

He may have changed since then, but he definitely has the air of a dickhead about him.

Apparently Root was a lovely bloke though, so that's a positive.

I have seen and sometimes met Bairstow on England tours in Australia, the Caribbean and South Africa and I would say he has not changed.

Haha, glad to have it confirmed.

Sounds like you've watched cricket all over! Are you in the Barmy Army or something?

Bairstow always strikes me as having a bit of a chip on his shoulder. I really took a dim view of his comments after his century in Sri Lanka a couple of years ago. I canít remember the specifics but I remember thinking it was disrespectful of Foakes, a new player making his way.

I appreciate Bairstow has had to go through some horrible circumstances, but I feel he directs his emotions in the wrong way sometimes. No denying heís a fine player though, but he has some gaps in his game in Test cricket.

Definitely, Paul. I don't think he reacted well to Buttler being brought back either.

Yes and no Rory. A group of us travel together and we use the Barmy Army for information on tour dates, ticket availability and suitable accommodation. They get hold of good information early however we keep away from the gatherings whilst on tour. Some of them seem to have an ordained sense of importance as the only fans fit to support England and everyone else is an imposter. Mind you having said that one of their main songwriter/starter  is a lad from Alvechurch a massive Villa fan. So he's ok :).

That's cool, and sounds like a good approach. I've always been a bit ambivalent about the Barmy Army. It can be bad enough sitting in the Hollies stand near them, let alone being on tour with a finite number of hotels and so on!

Yep, not a bad test in the end.
