Former Victorian cricket captain Darren Berry took a dig at Australia skipper Pat Cummins’ leadership abilities during the ongoing Ashes series against England. Darren Berry predicted that Pat Cummins would resign from the leadership role after the completion of the Ashes 2023 series.
Grammar check: England scored 592 runs in the first innings of the fourth Test at Old Trafford in Manchester on Friday, July 21. England wicketkeeper-batter Jonny Bairstow hammered the Australian bowling attack on Day 3 of the Test match, scoring an unbeaten 99 runs off 81 deliveries.
Pat Cummins Is A Magnificent Cricketer – Darren Berry
Darren Berry took to Twitter to express disappointment over Pat Cummins‘ captaincy and mentioned that he would resign from the captaincy after the ongoing series.
“Pat Cummins is a magnificent cricketer no doubt but remember this msg – he will resign from the captaincy after the Ashes series. The question is do they go back to Smudge (Steve Smith) or move forward to Head or Marsh?” Berry tweeted.
This Is Unwatchable – Darren Berry
In another tweet, Berry criticized Cummins for being clueless about his captaincy and described the match as unwatchable.
“This is unwatchable. Goodnight to all lovers of the game of our great game of cricket. This is absolutely insane to anyone watching this s**t with half a clue about the game. Enough is enough now … keep banging em in lads WTF,” Berry wrote on Twitter.
Following James Anderson’s dismissal, Berry expressed shock and disbelief, sarcastically stating that he had never seen anything like it before.
“Well, knock me over with a feather, a fast ball at the stumps to the No.11 gets him out. I’m shocked. What a circus. Never seen anything like this ever.”
Jonny Bairstow formed an exceptional partnership of 66 runs with No.11 batter Jimmy Anderson. The score was 9-526 when Anderson came to the crease, and Bairstow contributed the majority of the runs during the partnership with his aggressive batting approach, almost pushing the total towards 600.
