During the second Test match of the 2023 Ashes Series between England and Australia, the manner in which England wicketkeeper Jonny Bairstow was bowled by Australian wicketkeeper Alex Carey caused major controversy between the two teams. Bairstow had gone beyond his crease after leaving the ball, but as the ball was not dead at the time, Carey let him run out.
