Watch: Bairstow trolled in live telecast when using binoculars
England are at a much stronger position in the second Test against South Africa as they set a mammoth target of 438 runs for the hosts to win the Tests. The visitors are eight wicket away from the victory while the hosts are 312 runs away from the victory.
In the relaxed pavilion of England team, live telecast director had some fun with their player Johnny Bairstow who is not playing the Test match as he failed in the first Test. The incident happened during the 60th over of English innings.
The England wicket-keeper batsman was using binoculars to see the match from the pavilion. But the tv director made some fun of him by telecasting him and some female audiences in the consecutive frames, portraying like Bairstow was looking at them.
The fun part extended for some time in the live telecast and it was more enlightened by the commentators in the commentary box. Even England fast bowler James Anderson also reacted for the viral video in Twitter.
