Ashwin threatens Smith at the non-striker end
In fact, during the 15th over of Australia’s innings, Ashwin saw Smith walk out of the crease after stopping in his delivery stride and gave him a warning. Ashwin made a wise decision to stop while bowling and warn Smith. Seeing this, Virat Kohli standing in the slip started laughing by clapping.
