Steve Smith 'disappointed' by Eoin Morgan reaction to Ben Stokes dismissal

Australia captain Steven Smith says that England captain Eoin Morgan's reaction to Ben Stokes's dismissal during their second one-day international is "disappointing".

Australia captain Steven Smith says that Eoin Morgan's reaction to the controversial Ben Stokes dismissal during the second one-day international was "disappointing".

Stokes was dismissed after the ball hit his hand in an attempt by Mitchell Starc to run him out and England captain Morgan said that he would not have appealed the wicket.

"I think that [Morgan's reaction] is a little bit disappointing," Smith told Sky Sports News.

"The umpires are there to make a decision, it went upstairs to the third umpire and he saw it the same way we saw it and it was given out.

"If you wilfully put your hand out in front of the ball then you're given out and that's the way it went."

Australia won the match by 64 runs.
