Sunil Gavaskar welcome to give me a ring and talk about my Test cricket: Jonny Bairstow

England cricketer Jonny Bairstow has hit back at Sunil Gavaskar for questioning his intent in the Test series defeat, saying the Indian legend is more than welcome to call or message him and discuss his will to play the longest format.

Bairstow had score 0, 0, 0, and 28 in the four innings that he played in England’s 1-3 Test series defeat against India, prompting Gavaskar to comment that he looked “uninterested”.

“Yeah, he’s more than welcome to give me a ring and ask me about my will to do well in Test cricket and my enjoyment in Test cricket,” Bairstow said in response to Gavaskar’s comments.

The 31-year-old smashed 112-ball 124 as England made a mockery of India’s 337-run target to canter home with 39 balls to spare.

Following Bairstow’s dismissal off Ravichandran Ashwin in the second innings of the final Test in Ahmedabad, Gavaskar had commentated that the batsman looked “uninterested” during his stay at the crease.

“You have not scored a run, and just come in and pushed at it, as if there was no fielder at backward short leg. It looked to me as if it was the shot of a person uninterested,”

“What’s he trying to do? The First ball, he should be looking to play a soft defensive shot. There is a fielder there at backward short leg. Uninterested,” Gavaskar had said during his TV commentary.
