Jonny Bairstow Wiki – Jonny Bairstow Biography
Jonny Bairstow of England was the first to respond as activists from Just Stop Oil invaded the ground at Lord’s during the first few minutes of the second Ashes Test against Australia.
Jonny Bairstow lifted a Just Stop Oil protester off the ground after they invaded the pitch at Lord’s during the first Ashes Test. The test started at 11 a.m. on Wednesday morning, with James Anderson opening the bowling for Australian batsman David Warner. The first over started with little drama, with Warner hitting a boundary to leave the score at 4-0. Before Stuart Broad could throw the second on Usman Khawaja, two protesters ran onto the field with orange powder paint. Bairstow was quicker to react, picking up one of them and marching him to the edge of the boundary. Mirror Sports cricket correspondent Dean Wilson tweeted from Lord’s: “Looks like an attempt at a Just Stop Oil protest at Lord’s but they missed Jonny Bairstow who simply picked one of them up and carried them off the pitch. Extraordinary scenes. Ground crew cleaning up the orange dust that didn’t reach the pitch.” England captain Ben Stokes and Warner were seen trying to stop one of the protesters, who was wearing a white “Just Stop Oil” T-shirt. He was then accosted by a steward of the Lord amid a chorus of loud boos from the crowd.

Protesters from Just Stop Oil disrupt the Lord’s Ashes Test
The incident failed to disrupt cricket much, and the pitch was unaffected. Bairstow went to change his shirt and reappeared shortly after in the famous long room. Play resumed after a brief interruption. Just Stop Oil wants the UK government to stop new oil, gas and coal projects in the UK immediately and wants Lord’s to release a statement demanding an end to new fossil fuels. A Just Stop Oil spokesperson said: “Cricket is an important part of our national heritage, but how can we enjoy England against Australia when so much of the cricket world is becoming unsuitable for humans to live in? We can no longer afford to be distracted when the sports we play, the food we eat, and the culture we hold dear are at risk.” It is time for cricket lovers and all those who understand the gravity of this situation to take to the streets and demand action from this illegitimate and criminal government. When our children ask us ‘what did we do’ to avoid this crisis, we better have a good answer.”
Just Stop Oil has earned a reputation for disrupting sporting events this year, with the World Snooker Championship being the most prominent profile of their protests. Play was suspended in April after a protester climbed on the table and emptied a packet of orange powder paint onto it. They also disrupted the Epsom Derby, although they were unable to enter the race course. Bairstow has previously worked with pitch invaders, having been involved in the YouTube prankster Jarvo 69 incident. Pitch invader Daniel Jarvis collided with Bairstow on the grounds of the Oval during the fourth Test against India in 2021. Jarvis was subsequently sentenced to eight weeks in prison, suspended for two years, after being found guilty of aggravated trespassing.
