With Ashes around the corner, England Cricket Board will now breathe a sigh of relief as their wicket-keeper batter Jonny Bairstow is back. An unfortunate freak injury occurred while playing golf, Jonny had to undergo surgery and months of rest before he could start playing again. However, finally the player has completely recovered and in a social media post thanked all those who supported him during the time.

Jonny Bairstow was in the form of his life before being ruled out last summer. Before being ruled out Bairstow smashed four Test hundreds, including twin tons against India. In order to prepare for the Ashes, the wicket-keeper batter is currently playing county cricket for Yorkshire. He established a resounding return to cricket last week against Nottinghamshire’s second XI, smashing 97 off 88 balls with 13 boundaries. During the last Ashes series, despite losing 4-0, Jonny Bairstow was the best performer for his team.

I cannot wait for the summer ahead: Jonny Bairstow

“I Cannot Wait for the Summer Ahead,” Says Jonny Bairstow

“36 weeks, 36 weeks of pain, 36 weeks of an emotional rollercoaster, 36 weeks of asking questions, you may not get answered. The road hasn’t been straightforward nor easy, but hey it’s me. Why would it be! Tomorrow I’ll think about all those rubbish days, all those doubts and I’ve come through with a huge amount of strength and desire to get back to where I left off through those tricky times! To all those who have there for me a massive thank you! To my family and friends, I couldn’t have done it without you! The fire burns bright and I cannot wait for the summer ahead,” Jonny Bairstow added.

The addition of Jonny Bairstow will make the already strong England team stronger. Under the captaincy of Ben Stokes, the team has reached new heights. In the history series against Pakistan too, they defeated the home team. Apart from Jonny Bairstow, James Anderson too is playing county cricket. Steve Smith from Australia, as well as India’s Cheteshwar Pujara, are too part of the this domestic competition. The Ashes will begin on June 16 and end on July 31.
