Australia and Pakistan are playing the second Test of the AUS vs PAK series, which is a Boxing Day test match. Australia has won the first test, and in the second match, the team is also in a strong position with a score of 187 in 66 overs with the loss of 3 wickets.

Test cricket in Australia is one of the best things, with enthusiastic fans, lush green grounds, and some uninvited guests. Yet again, an interesting incident took place in the 48th over of the Australian innings when one side of the ground got covered with a group of pigeons. This happened when the scoreboard was showing a score of 121/2, with Marnus Labuschagne playing at 17 (64) and Steve Smith at 5 (40).

When the pigeons covered the ground, Steve Smith tried hard to get the pigeons to fly away from the ground. He went running with his bat and tried to toy with them; they flew, but then again came back. The second time, Hasan Ali ran to them, removed them from the ground, and signed double thumbs to the players to continue playing the game.
