[Watch] Umesh Yadav's Jaffa Leaves Steve Smith Confused & Frustrated At The Same Time
Day 2 of the ongoing ICC World Test Championship (WTC) 2023 between India and Australia at The Oval, started with both Travis Head and Steven Smith reaching their respective milestones. While Head completed his fourth Test 150, Smith went on register his 31st Test ton; also his ninth against India, putting Australia further in a dominating position.
However, Indian bowlers learned from their mistakes on Day 1 and hit better lengths that produced desired results. Head fell for 163 off Mohammed Siraj, Cameron Green got bowled for six by Mohammed Shami, as Smith continued his march on the other end.
After the drinks break, Umesh Yadav, who had an off day on Wednesday produced an absolute peach of a delivery to Smith in the third ball of the 97th over. Smith in his own style, made a surprised face, while Yadav on his return to the run-up, had his tongue out.

Smith's marathon knock came to an end in the next over, as the maverick batter fell for 121 to Shardul Thakur.
As of writing, Australia have crossed 400 runs, but the Indians have made a sensational comeback in the first session of the day by bagging four wickets.
