Australian batsmen Steve Smith toyed with Pakistan's Wahab Riaz during their ICC World Twenty20 match in Mohali overnight.

Australia powered to 193/4 in their allotted 20 overs against Pakistan at Mohali with Steve Smith (61 from 43 balls) and Shane Watson (44 from 21 balls) pioneering the inning.

If you were to sum up this shot and Pakistan's bowling in less than 140 characters, it would be this:


Soon the joke of Wahab's mistake spread through social media.
