The Australian batsman Steve Smith is back in the Australian team and it seems as if he has resumed from where he left in the second test match. Steve has scored a double century in the first innings and has helped his team in putting up a huge total of 497/8. England scored 301 in its first innings and it is already trailing by a big margin of 196 runs.
The Ashes series has always been full of tension for the players but sometimes there are moments which bring a smile on everyone’s face. Something of this sort happened in the fourth test as well and the two players who were part of this incident were England skipper Joe Root and Australian player Nathan Lyon.
While Nathan Lyon was returning to the bowling mark, he interchanged the bails, it was noticed by the England skipper Joe Root and as Nathan turned back, Joe went and put the bails as they were placed earlier. It was quite a hilarious sight as we saw two international players getting engaged in such an act.
Here is the video of the incident:

Joe Root was at the score of 68 at that time and it’s quite unfortunate for England that he got out just after scoring 3 more runs.
Till the time this article was written, Australia was leading by 196 runs and they were all set to bat in their second innings.
