Watch: Stoinis throws away his wicket following a horrible mix-up
Australian all-rounder Marcus Stoinis was dismissed in a run out as a result of horrible mixup between him and Steve Smith in the game against England.
England and Australia are sweating out at Lord’s for their league stage fixture of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. Australia batted first and set a target of 286 for the hosts to seal the victory.
Australian openers once again provided a solid start for the Aussies with an opening partnership of 123. But the Australian middle order failed to capitalize the good start and convert it into a big score over 300.
Meanwhile, Australian all-rounder Marcus Stoinis had a funny run out dismissal following a horrible mix up with Steve Smith. It happened during the 42nd over of Australian innings.
On the fifth delivery of the 42nd over, Smith drove one tossed up delivery beautifully towards deep cover and charged for the run. A second looked imminent but Smith turned his back on Stoinis, who came all the way charging to the other end. Smith was shocked to see Stoinis at the other end as Rashid collected the throw and handed to Jos Buttler safely.
