While Ben Stokes left the delivery, Australian players saw a clear deflection of the ball and appealed for LBW. Umpire agreed to the same and gave Stokes out, however, the England all-rounder reviewed the decision. In the replays, it was seen that the ball did not hit the pads. Moreover, the delivery hit the off-stump but the bails did not fall. Rather, the ball was deflected after hitting the stumps.
Meanwhile, England reached 258-7 on the scoreboard at the stumps of day 3 of Australia vs England 4th Test of Ashes 2021-22. While Stokes scored 66 runs, Jonny Bairstow slammed a marvellous century and is currently unbeaten on 103. England trails by 158 runs in the match.
Earlier, Australia batted first and posted 416-8 (d). Usman Khawaja, who played his first Test after a gap of two years, slammed an impeccable knock of 137 runs. Steve Smith also played an impressive knock of 67 runs. Australia has already won the Ashes 2021-22 series 3-0 after winning the first three Tests.
