On 1 June 2023, England took on Ireland in a one-off Test match at Lords. However, all eyes were on Jonny Bairstow as he was set to make his comeback for England after a long gap of 10 months due to injury. But, before the clash, his Instagram story left fans stunned as the England team bus got blocked by ‘Just Stop Oil’ protesters.

Speaking of the shared story, he wrote: “If we’re a bit late it’s not our fault.” However, despite some delay, the team reached in time and the match got started as per schedule. The Barmy army also shared a tweet. Speaking about the protest, it is mainly for taking more action on climate change.

“I’ll be going out to enjoy it because the last nine months have been tough times.” – Jonny Bairstow

But, for that, the protesters have been seen blocking major roads. Even, that included pitch invasions at several Premier League football grounds. Speaking of the Barmy Army’s tweet, they wrote: “The England team bus is being held up on the way to Lord’s this morning by Just Stop Oil protesters.” Speaking of the match, England won the toss and asked Ireland to bat first. Fans were happy to see Bairstow in the playing XI. Before the start of the match, he had a chat with Sky Sports.

He said: “It’s amazing. What a special place this is; what a special feeling it is to represent England and be back with the boys. It was as simple as a slip… it was horrendous. It wasn’t easy, that day or the few months post. It’s just another chapter, isn’t it? In my mind, there wasn’t any thought that I wasn’t going to get back [but] there were obviously some dark days. [Fitness?] In many ways, going up and down is probably easier than being at extra cover. You’re able to control the movements a bit more. It’s something that I enjoy doing… most of all, I’ll be going out to enjoy it because the last nine months have been tough times.”
