Steve Smith top-scored with 85 as Australia reached 223 against England in their 2019 World Cup semi-final on Thursday.
Smith, booed to and from the crease, held Australia’s innings together. The former skipper survived an lbw review off Mark Wood, Hawkeye revealing the ball would have only clipped the top of the stumps, but the former Australia captain was sent packing shortly afterwards.
England keeper Jos Buttler removed his glove and threw down the stumps at the non-striker’s end, Smith short of his ground and already walking back to the pavilion before the replays were shown as the Aussies were reduced to 217-8 with three overs to go.
Smith’s departure was the start of Australia losing their last three wickets in the space of 12 balls.
Buttler’s run-out of Smith turned out to be a special one as his throw went between the legs of Smith before crashing into the stumps.
