Steve Smith gives hilarious reply after a fan asks him a tough question
Steve Smith is one of the very few batsmen in the modern-day era who is consistent in all the competitive games. Australia’s run-machine has by far lived up to his batting potential. He was the highest run-scorer in the 2015 World Cup tournament.
The right-handed batsman scored as many as 402 runs at a spectacular average of 67. He smashed a century and four fifties in the marquee event. He was also named in the team of the tournament for the 2015 ODI World Cup.
Four years later, the star cricketer showcased his mettle with the bat in the Ashes series against England. He was the highest run-scorer in the series, scoring an aggregate of 774 runs at an outstanding average of 110.
Smith hit three centuries and three fifties to his name. Playing seven innings in the series, Smith’s scores read 144, 142, 92, 211, 82, 80, 23. Only Sir Don Bradman holds the record of most runs scored in an Ashes Test series – 974 runs in the year 1930.
Recently, the star batsman interacted with his fans on Instagram by throwing a question and answer session. His fans asked him various questions about the game and all of a sudden, one of the users asked Smith about the yorker.
The fan wrote: “How do you play a 150 kmph yorker?”. The former Australia skipper came up with a hilarious reply. He wrote: “Hopefully with your bat”
Steve Smith must be really feeling disappointed with his batting in the IPL. He failed to remain consistent throughout the tournament. He also confessed that he was terribly bad in the tourney. However, he is looking forward to delivering the much-needed amends in the upcoming home series against India.
“I was pretty disappointed with my batting throughout the IPL. Wasn’t consistent enough, I started well and had a few innings here and there. I never really got into a really good rhythm. The last few days I have found something, that people close to me that know me well know, I have sort of found my hands the last few days which I am extremely excited about. It just hasn’t been right until a couple of days ago, and everything clicked in. It’s taken me three-and-half, four months to do it,” Smith told earlier.
