In 2017, Jonny Bairstow published a biography titled A Clear Blue Sky, written with Duncan Hamilton. The book explores the loss of his father David Bairstow early in his life, and the journey from that to scoring his first test century, where he looks up to the sky in tribute to his dad, and sees “a clear blue sky” hence the title of the book.

Bairstow was born on 26 September 1989 in Bradford, West Yorkshire, the second son of former Yorkshire and England wicket-keeper David Bairstow and the younger half-brother of former Derbyshire player Andrew Bairstow.

Bairstow plays as a right-handed wicket-keeper-batsman. Along with Ben Stokes, he holds the world record for the highest sixth-wicket stand in Tests: 399 against South Africa during England 2015-2016.

Bairstow was a member of the England ODI squad for their match against Ireland in August 2011; however, he was not picked to play. He made his debut the following month after he was called up for the final ODI against India. 

Playing as a specialist batsman, he scored an unbeaten 41 off just 21 balls to help England reach a Duckworth-Lewis adjusted total. His innings included three sixes, the first off just the fifth ball he faced, and he was named Man of the Match.

On 11 October 2011, Bairstow hit a century off 53 balls as England beat a Hyderabad Cricket Association XI – during a warm up for a series against India.

On 25 February 2012, Bairstow was named man of the match in the second T20 of the series between Pakistan and England at Dubai International Cricket Stadium. England won the match.

Bairstow was selected to play for the England Lions in one of the warm-up games for this series. He came in as the 7th batsman and scored 50 runs before being caught by Ravi Rampaul. Bairstow also made 5 catches throughout the match.

For the 2013 Ashes series, Bairstow was named in the squad as Nick Compton was dropped which allowed Joe Root to open the batting and leaving the number six spot free for Bairstow.

He was selected as the number six batsman for the 1st Test where he made scores of 37 and 15. In the Second Test, he made 67 off 146 balls in the first innings and 20 runs in the second innings helping England gain a 2–0 series lead.

Bairstow was selected in the 2013-14 Ashes series squad however he did not play a match until he was called up to the team for the 4th Test. With England 3–0 down in the series Jonny replaced wicket-keeper Matt Prior after a poor run of form making Bairstow and his father the first father/son combination to keep wicket for England.

In the 4th Test Jonny took 6 catches and performed well behind wicket but he could only get 10 runs in the first innings and 21 in the second innings. He finished the series with 49 runs.

Every English and Australian player is defined by how they fare in the Ashes. Although England suffered a hammering in Australia during the 2017-18 series, Bairstow was among the very few visiting batsmen to impress.

Unlike many of his mates, he seemed comparatively at ease against Australia’s rampaging pace attack and also had a century to his name in Perth. Given the number of starts he got, Bairstow would be disappointed at having under-achieved through the series. However, it was a tour that was only going to improve him mentally. 

Bairstow found it hard to break into the XI as the wicket-keeper batsman in the shorter formats – courtesy Buttler’s heroics. However, his imperious form during the 2016-17 coupled with Jason Roy’s lean patch forced the selectors to pick Bairstow as the opener.

It didn’t take long for him to make a mark as he notched up two centuries in the home ODIs against West Indies in 2017.

After continued poor form in the Pakistani series by Buttler, Bairstow was announced as England’s first-choice wicketkeeper in Test cricket. In the first test of the 2015-16 South Africa series, Bairstow, batting at number 7, made 41 runs. 

He followed this with an excellent 79 from 76 balls in the second innings, as England set the hosts a target of 416 to win. England went on to win the game in convincing fashion, by 241 runs.

Despite missing an earlier opportunity against AB de Villiers, he became the first England wicketkeeper to take a stumping since 2012, removing Temba Bavuma for 0 off the bowling of Moeen Ali.

In the second Test at Newlands in Cape Town, Bairstow scored 150 not out to record his maiden Test century. He and Ben Stokes (who himself scored 258) put on a world record 399 for the sixth wicket, as England moved from 167–4 to 629–6 declared. 

England wobbled in the second innings, but Bairstow hit an unbeaten 30 to ensure the match ended in a draw. He made 45 in England’s first innings of the third Test, helping them surpass South Africa’s first innings total. A good performance with the ball saw England win the game by seven wickets, to take a 2–0 lead in the series.
