As Smith walked off, Bairstow couldn’t resist a playful jab, saying, “See ya, smudge!” However, Smith, who is never one to let things slide, quickly responded, asking, “What’s that mate? Hey?” Bairstow, with his trademark quirkiness, corrected himself, saying, “I said, ‘Cheers, see ya later.'”

These lighthearted exchanges are what make the Ashes truly special, adding a touch of camaraderie to the intense battle on the pitch.

Stay tuned and keep your eyes peeled for the upcoming chapters of the Ashes clash at Headingley, as the banter between the players promises to provide additional doses of laughter and entertainment.
