SL VS AUS: “Against The Spin, I Know I’ve Got a Few More Shots”: Steve Smith

Steve Smith stated on the “Unplayable” podcast that he felt he should have turned his fifties into significant scores in Pakistan.

“I probably had three opportunities to get hundreds in Pakistan, I just didn’t quite convert them. I feel like my plans were in a pretty decent place, but I could’ve potentially been a bit more aggressive against the spin over there, and played a few more shots. But against the spin, I know I’ve got a few more shots that I can potentially bring out and put a bit more pressure back on the bowler.”

Smith stated

The former captain also discussed changing tactics in relation to the state of the ball.

Against a strong bowling attack led by Shaheen Afridi, Usman Khawaja and Steve Smith shone with the bat for the visitors. Smith noted that it was challenging to play aggressive strokes against reverse swing.

“I was also batting at stages where the ball was reversing quite big and I know as a batter coming in next, it’s probably the toughest thing to face a reversing ball on those kinds of wickets against some good bowlers in (Shaheen) Afridi and Hasan Ali. against the new ball you can play a few more shots as I did in the third Test when I got in a little bit earlier and got some boundaries away early.”
