The fifth Test match of the Ashes is being played between Australia and England in Hobart. The Kangaroos were bundled out for 303 runs in the first innings. During this innings, a funny incident was seen in the 63rd. In front of veteran England bowler Stuart Broad was Australian player Mitchell Starc. Broad starts his run up and is about to reach the stumps when he stops suddenly. The reason for this was the camera behind Stark.
Actually, a camera remains in the air during the match. Covers the entire game. This troubled Broad and his anger erupted. He shouted loudly – ‘Stop rotating the robot’. During the first innings of AUS, Broad took 3 wickets for 59 runs.
