Australian batter Steve Smith was seen ‘apologizing’ for his minor outburst on Day 1 of the 3rd Test against Pakistan in Karachi. Smith vented out his frustration after a robot camera, which is seen moving around capturing the game close to the boundary, appeared in his peripheral vision while batting.

In the 11th over of the Aussie innings, Smith was facing Hasan Ali when the incident took place. The robot began moving as the bowler was delivering the ball, leaving Smith annoyed. However, he ‘made up’ with the machine, apologizing and also signing on it.

Carey reached his third career fifty while Green also brought up his 4th fifty in Tests. The first session was going to determine which way the match would swing and so far, it has been Australia dominating the proceedings.

The surface in Lahore for the final Test has also worked out similar to the first two Tests, as per the cricketing fraternity. However, both teams need to bat on the pitch once to determine how it is playing. The series is currently tied at 0-0 and the winner here will take the trophy home.
