Jonny-Bairstow-using binoculars

SA vs ENG: James Anderson reacts hilariously to Jonny Bairstow’s ‘binoculars’ act from the dressing room balcony

Jonny Bairstow had a lot of fun on the balcony of England’s dressing room during the third day of the ongoing second Test against South Africa at Newlands, Cape Town.

Bairstow could only score ten runs in two innings of the first Test and hence was left out of the second game; however, the wicket-keeper batsman did spend quality time using a binocular from the balcony.

England’s veteran bowler James Anderson, who created a record by surpassing Ian Botham in the list of most Test fifers (28), reacted to his team mate’s funny activity. He simply used laughing smileys while reacting to the incident.

Meanwhile, England, after bowling South Africa out on 223, reached 218-4 in their second innings. Thanks to Dominic Sibley, who remained unbeaten on 85; England lead by 264 runs at the end of third day’s play.
