I’ve tried to get the door open; I’ve got this side open, Marnus (Labuschagne) is on the other side trying to open that to not much avail. Not quite the evening I had planned, let’s be honest."

The 32-year-old couldn't get enough help from the right-hander Marnus Labuschagne, who was trying to help his vice-captain outside of the lift. Moreover, Steve Smith also added that he's going to take a seat due to nothing left in his mind to do.

"Well, I’m just taking a seat. What else do you do when you’re stuck in a lift? I could be here for a while. Anyone got any suggestions for what I can do?" the 32-year-old added.

While Marnus Labuschagne trying to open the door, the operators of the lift arrived in a while and freed up Australia's deputy captain. As of now, the right-hander will be in looking to get some runs from his willow ahead of the 4th Test against England in the Ashes series 2021-22.
