England were in complete control during their chase of 121 against Australia on Day Three of the third Ashes 2015 Test at Edgbaston on Friday. With Ian Bell having scored a half-century and Joe Root looking good as well, it was just a matter of time before the match was over and done with. In this scenario, the camera panned to the spectators to show their reactions. A young family was zeroed-in on by the cameras, which is when the incident in question occurred. The father, trying to console his older son, was ‘mugged’ by his younger child — a toddler in his arms. The hilarious moment corresponded with an amusing bit of commentary as well.

Mitchell Starc bowled Alastair Cook early, while Josh Hazlewood got Adam Lyth out LBW, but Mitchell Johnson and Nathan Lyon were unable to create any opportunities despite bowling well. Earlier in the day, Peter Nevill and Mitchell Starc added 64 for the eighth wicket, which was followed by productive stands between Starc and Josh Hazlewood, and Starc and Nathan Lyon, as Australia extended their lead past 100. Nevill scored his maiden Test fifty and Starc scored a half-century of his own as well. Steven Finn took his career-best haul when he took his sixth wicket, while Ben Stokes took a wicket as well. Nevill was the first man to go on the day, edging one from Finn down the leg side as Jos Buttler took a superb catch. The next wicket came from Stokes, as Hazlewood slashed one to slip with Joe Root taking an absolute gem. Starc was the last man to fall, hitting one from Moeen Ali to the man at covers for a well-compiled 58. England need 121 to win the third Test and lead The Ashes 2015 2-1. England’s openers Alastair Cook and Adam Lyth survived the two overs before lunch with Cook scoring 4 to leave England 117 runs away from victory.
