‘Worst thing I’ve ever seen in cricket’ … ‘I can’t imagine having a beer with them’: Broad, McCullum turn blowtorch onto Aussies
Brendon McCullum has indicated England could skip post-series beers with Australia, with his side furious over the Jonny Bairstow stumping at Lord’s on day five.
While veteran seamer Stuart Broad lashed out at Alex Carey over the controversial dismissal of Bairstow by sledging the keeper with “That’s all you’ll ever be remembered for” in a comment that was picked up by the stump microphones.
Broad was also overheard saying Carey’s stumping was “literally the worst thing I’ve ever seen in cricket”.
He kept up the gamesmanship by mocking Carey at the end of several overs by deliberately placing his bat well behind the crease and asking the fielders if the ball was officially dead so he could move out of his crease.
