The Yorkshireman was having none of it
Jonny Bairstow physically carried off a Just Stop Oil protester after a pitch invasion on the first day of the Ashes test at Lords.
The Yorkshireman took a no-nonsense approach to dispersing the campaigners and was warmly applauded back onto the pitch after a quick change of kit.
Protesters from the Just Stop Oil group tried to disrupt the game in the second over as Stuart Broad bowled to Usman Khawaja.
They were armed with the usual orange chalk but struggled to make an impact after the wicket keeper’s intervention.

The Yorkshireman then made his way to the changing rooms to change his whites which now had orange chalk on them, before making his way back onto the field of play.
