Bairstow trolling Smith becomes the moment of the Ashes

The Ashes 2019 had many remarkable moments for the fans to relish, from Steve Smith’s prodigious form to Ben Stokes incredible finish, Ashes carried some sumptuous memories. Another moment which grabbed the public attention was Jonny Bairstow trolling Smith on the field.

Smith was foxed by Bairstow when he faked a run-out during the 5th Ashes Test. Smith was running towards the keeper’s end when a throw came from long-on, although the fielder threw the ball towards Jofra Archer who was standing at the bowler’s end, Bairstow deliberately pretended that he had got the ball and fooled Smith into a dive.

This chucklesome moment became a highlighting memory of the series as it carried emotions from the both sides. The incredible Test series ended with both teams winning 2 games each. Australia managed to retain the Ashes while England’s performance was pretty competitive too.
