The incident takes place in the 78th over on Day 2, where Smith played a shot on Chris Woakes’ delivery and ran for a double. While coming back for the second one, substitute fielder George Ealham collected the ball and threw it towards wicketkeeper Bairstow, who did not waste any time and dislodged the bails.

Smith made a dive into the crease and the decision was sent to the third umpire. After checking the different angles, it was shown that Bairstow had hit the stumps when Smith was out of the crease.

Seeing the angle, the England team started to celebrate while Smith made his way back to the dugout. However, he stopped to see the decision on the big screen, which turned out to be not out. All the fans and commentators were left shocked at seeing such a decision.

Speaking on the match, Australia chose to bowl first after Pat Cummins won his first toss in the last 6 games. England in their first inning scored 283 runs after losing all their wickets while Australia scored 295 runs for 10 wickets loss.

During the 1st session of day 3, England scored 55 runs without losing a wicket and made a lead by 43 runs.
