" And how did Australia get Stokes out? With England stealing momentum just before lunch, thanks to a fired-up Ben Stokes, it was inevitable that Australia were going to stick to the short ball strategy and hope for a mishit from the English skipper. On expected lines, Stokes mistimed one fourth ball after lunch and Steve Smith, of all people, dropped a relatively easy catch at deep backward square. At that particular moment, one could sense Australia feeling a tad fidgety with shades of Headingley running on the back of their minds.

Here is a statement from the MCC: “After this morning’s play, emotions were running high, and words were unfortunately exchanged with some of the Australian team, by a small number of Members. We have unreservedly apologised to the Australian Team and will deal with any Member who has not maintained the standard we expect through our disciplinary processes.
