Watch : Bairstow deceives Smith again, this time with the bat
England wicket-keeper batsman Johnny Bairstow had some trolling moments with Australian batsman Steve Smith during the fifth Ashes Test at Oval.
The Ashes 2019 has ended in a draw as both the teams won two matches each, while one game ended in a draw. However, Australia managed to retain the Ashes with themselves by the draw. This is the first time in last 18 years that Australia have retained the Ashes in English soil.
After failing to reconquer the urn, the hosts managed to comeback strongly in the final game to level the series with a huge win. During the fifth Test, English wicket-keeper batsman Johnny Bairstow had some hilarious moments with Steve Smith when both of them were batting respectively.
When Smith was batting, Bairstow deceived him with a false action, tempting Steve Smith for a long stretched dive in the pitch as he was on the edge of a run out. Bairstow didn’t stop on that point and he continued the fun when he came into bat for England.
The incident happened in the 66th over of the innings when Bairstow was batting on 2. It was a fullish delivery from Lyon and it looked like Bairstow was prepared to sweep it but he decided to change his mind at the last moment and opened the face of his bat to push it towards Smith, who was left surprised and ended up misfielding.
