Australia’s best batsman, Steve Smith, is an amazing fielder than that. Many times it has been seen on the field. In the third T20 match of the series played in Sydney between India and Australia, Steve Smith did not allow Virat Kohli’s shot to cross the boundary while fielding brilliantly.
Virat Kohli hit the long ball off the fourth ball of the 13th over of Mitchell Swapson’s innings. The ball seemed to go to Six, but Smith stubbornly jumped and did not let the ball cross the boundary.

Cricket Australia tweeted a video of Smith’s great effort.
Smith also caught the catch of Sanju Samson (10) on the first ball. However, he dropped the catch of Virat Kohli on the second ball of the third over of the innings. Kohli then agreed that the ball would be caught, but Smith could not catch a catch on a deep-mid-wicket.
Australia won the match by 12 runs. Host Australia scored 186 for 5 in 20 overs and India got a target of 187 runs to win. Despite the brilliant performance of Virat Kohli (85), the Indian team could only manage 174 runs after losing 7 wickets and lost the match by 12 runs. The Indian team lost the third T20 but won the 3-match series 2-1. The visiting team had won both the T20s early in this series.
