All-round Star England player Ben Stokes was in a fun mood during the 3rd Test of the Ashes 2021-22 against Australia at Melbourne Cricket Ground and he attempted to distract point guard Mark Wood using his aquatic distraction antics.
During Boxing Day Test drink breaks at Melbourne Cricket Ground, the host broadcaster conducted the interview with England speedster Mark Wood using the spider camera. As the interview took place during drink breaks, players had bottles of water and other drinks in hand.

Meanwhile, versatile Ben Stokes decided to distract Wood during his interview and tried to have fun with the point guard. In the video shared by Cricket.com.au, the Express Stimulator was really busy answering questions and Stokes was seen behind him and he tried to break Wood’s focus several times by squirting the liquid from the bottle of water towards him.
However, when Stokes repeatedly failed he changed his position and moved closer to Wood and after a few attempts the all-rounder finally caught the attention of the pointers. Mark Wood looked slightly irritated and he yelled, “Bring him back, man”. However, nothing was serious as the commentators and players alike had a good laugh and fans on social media also enjoyed the fun moment.
