Ashes 2023 is undergoing its fourth Test, with the visitors leading the series with 2-1. During the second Test of what is known as the biggest cricketing rivalry, an activist from Just Stop Oil group invaded the game and disrupted the game for a brief period of time. The protester tried to spread orange powder on the field but intervention from the players prevented it. Meanwhile, the activist group didn’t stop there and invaded several tournaments, including Wimbledon. However, another incident related to the same cause has surfaced from the fourth Ashes Test.
Two fans, a father and his son, were spotted wearing orange t-shirts with ‘Just Top Soil’ written over them. However, they were told that their t-shirts were offensive and were ordered to remove them. The fans wore them to seemingly poke fun at the activist group that disrupted the game last month by invading the field at Lord’s.
Another fan chatted to the pair and claimed that they were surrounded by five policemen. He said, “It was nonsense. Around 4pm some police officers came over and said they had received a complaint and they needed to remove their shirts or leave. The guys weren’t very happy. They had to change. Some of the staff thought it a bit heavy-handed and gave them free drinks.”
However, an official from Greater Manchester Police said that their officers weren’t involved in it and that the club was involved in whatever happened. Speaking of the ongoing Ashes 2023, if Ben Stokes wants to win the series, his side needs to emerge victorious in the ongoing and next match.
