Australia are up against the arch-rivals England in the 36th fixture of the ongoing World Cup 2023. After winning the toss, England captain Jos Buttler put Pat Cummins’ Australia in to bat on what is said to be a double-paced pitch.
England had a really promising start after Chris Woakes sent both the Australian in-form batsmen, David Warner and Travis Head, back to the pavilion. Steve Smith and Marnus Labuschagne revived Australian innings but the former fell to England’s Adil Rashid in the 22nd over, leaving Australia at 113-3 after 22 overs. Australian wicket-keeper batsman Josh Inglis, too, fell to the same bowler after only scoring three runs.
However, what caught the attention of cricket enthusiasts on social media was the moment when Australia’s Cameron Green faced England’s pacer Mark Wood, who consistently bowled at around 150 km/h throughout his spell. Green lost his bat while attempting a pull shot against Wood’s short-pitched delivery, resulting in the ball soaring into the sky before landing in no-man’s-land.
