This incident happened in the 9th over of Australia’s innings. The hosts had lost their three wickets and Marcus Stoinis along with Glenn Maxwell were trying to carry on the innings. The pressure of rain rate was increasing, so Stoinis tried to play a big shot.

During this, Phillips appeared completely in the air.
