Footage has surfaced of Jonny Bairstow’s headbutt on Cameron Bancroft in a Perth bar about a month ago.

In a huge revelation, third umpire Marais Erasmus judged the impact of the headbutt using “Snicko”, and the impact was significant.

Jonny Bairstow backed this up, saying “it was huge impact. After Ben Stokes was involved in a brawl outside a bar, the coach told us to ‘use our heads’, so I went ahead and did just that. However, it’d be better if we can get a few big snickos off the Australian’s bats rather than their heads.”

Here is the footage:

England captain Joe Root showed full support for Jonny Bairstow. “Jonny was just following our coach’s instructions. After losing Benny Stokes, we didn’t want to lose another key player, so Jonny did the right thing in ‘using his head.’
It will be interesting to see what comes out of this.
