Steve Smith, arguably, sits as the best batsman of the modern day Test cricket. Scoring 6973 runs across 68 Test matches, the New South Wales born averages 64.56 with the bat. Moreover, he already has 26 centuries in the purest format of the game. All this makes him a wicket every bowler desires to get.
Recently, the new induction into the Test team of Pakistan, left-arm spinner Kashif Bhatti expressed his wish to get Steve Smith out in the forthcoming Test series against Australia. Recording a superlative performance in Pakistan’s domestic cricket season eased up his selection and with 331 first-class wickets at 22.98, Kashif has the numbers to trouble Kangaroos.
Speaking on his hard earned opportunity, Kashif promised to give his best if given a chance in the playing XI against Australia. Specifically, his target is Steve Smith as he is Australia’s best batsman and the Nawabshah born has been eyeing his scalp from a long time. It would be interesting to see what plan Kashif has to offer against the quality of Steve Smith.
