One of the world's best Test batsmen, Steve Smith is heavily influenced by the attitude of Indian captain Kohli (Virat Kohi) while chasing a target in limited-overs cricket. Steve Smith was participating in Sony Sports India's Facebook Live on Monday. During this, he praised Virat Kohli's game fiercely.
Steve Smith, the No.1 batsman in the Test rankings, said, 'Look at his average during the victory chasing the target in ODI cricket. He performs so well under pressure and is patient. He does the work and it is unfortunate for the opposing player. You have to appreciate this kind of player. '
On the frequent comparisons with Kohli, Smith said, 'I like Virat quite a lot. He is a great player. The way he plays cricket. The passion he has for cricket… his body has changed over time. He is now so much more fit, stronger and stronger. Great for cricket. '
Smith, the world's number one Test batsman, hoped that a solution would be found for bowlers, who would have a major impact on the International Cricket Council (ICC) ban on the use of saliva to shine the ball.
He said, “I may be a batsman but I still want to see a match between bat and ball.” I think this is extremely important for the game. You do not want to see the ball do nothing and the bowlers do not get any help at all. There is a need to solve this.
