Dhoni’s Cricketing Spirit Shines: Recall Appeal Against Ian Bell Echoes Jonny Bairstow-Like Run Out

Mahendra Singh Dhoni, former captain of India, believes that one must play the game of cricket in the proper “spirit,” and that winning or losing the match comes later. It is understandable why Dhoni holds the “ICC Spirit Of Cricket Award” in 2011 for his insightful act during the team’s tour of England.

The decision by Australia to run out England wicketkeeper-batsman Jonny Bairstow on the fifth day of the second Ashes Test at Lord’s on Sunday has drawn a lot of criticism. In the opening session of the last day, Josh Hazlewood bowled a ball that Bairstow thought was “dead,” leading him to leave his crease.

With a sneaky throw, Australia wicketkeeper Alex Carey managed to catch Bairstow short of the crease. The event caused many jeers around the Lord’s Stadium and bad blood between the England and Australian teams.

However, MS Dhoni had decided to retract the appeal for the run-out against England batter Ian Bell in a comparable circumstance back in 2011.

Bell had hit 159 in a Test in Nottingham in 2011, but it had come with Dhoni’s assistance. Ian Bell got run out on the penultimate ball of the Day 3 of the Test, believing that former England hitter Eoin Morgan’s stroke had reached the boundary. Bell began to move toward the direction of the non-striker’s end without first making sure that it was a boundary.

As the sides walked into the tea break, Dhoni ran out Bell for 137 following a throw from Praveen Kumar from the boundary. However, Dhoni notified the umpire that he was dropping the appeal after much discussion in the changing room, and Bell went on to bat again in the game.

Australia’s decision to run out Bairstow has caused this video to become extremely popular. India ultimately lost the Test series against England that year 4-0.

Ben Stokes, the captain of England, and coach Brendon McCullum felt that Australia had violated “the spirit” of the cricket rules when they dismissed Jonny Bairstow at Lord’s on Sunday. Bairstow was technically out, according to McCullum and Stokes, but Stokes would have withdrawn his request for an out.
