Australian batsman Steve Smith was stuck in an elevator for good ‘55 mins’, and takes it to Instagram to share the unusual experience.

As being Australia Test vice-captain Steve Smith on Thursday got stuck in a lift for a little less than an hour at the Park Hyatt in Melbourne.

The right-hand batsman kept himself busy by posting live updates through his Instagram while being stuck in the elevator.

Steve Smith said, “I’m on my floor, I’m staying on this level but the doors won’t open. Out of service up there apparently. 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.”

“Left waiting for more official help than Labuschagne could provide. Well, I am 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?” 

“That’s 55 minutes I’ll probably never get back,” Smith concluded in the last video.
