England batter Jonny Bairstow's dismissal caused controversy on the final day of the second Test at Lord's in ongoing England vs Australia Ashes series on Sunday. The match was already interesting enough but the runout brought more people to talk about it. England lost the first match as they needed to step up this time but they lost some wickets in quick sensation after a good start while chasing the target of 371 runs.

England were 193 for 5 when Bairstow ducked to avoid a bouncer from Australian pacer Cameron Green on the last ball of the 52nd over. He assumed that the over had finished, and stepped out of his crease. The Australian wicketkeeper Alex Carey hit the stumps with an underarm throw after collecting the ball. The decision was taken to the third umpire who ruled Bairstow was out.

"People are going to be unhappy about it, but it's the right decision," former Australia captain Mark Taylor said on Sky Sports.
