WATCH: Steve Smith’s unorthodox shots against Pakistan leaves cricketing world in awe

Posted On

Cricket is a beautiful game, and modern cricketers have proved that the famous theory in Cricket, which says that ‘Cricket is all about the technique is not absolute at all’.

Former Australian skipper Steve Smith falls in the list of the above-mentioned modern cricketers who played a vital role in challenging the concept of textbook cricket. Smith bats with a leg-stump guard having both his feet close to each other, his knees are bent, and the bat is the open face, which hints towards the gully. Yes, it doesn’t look appropriate in cricket coaching manuals, but Smith has made all this his biggest strength to tackle bowlers around the world.

His unorthodox technique haunts the bowlers in their sleep. His hand-eye coordination, good bat speed, excellent balance, and a perfect still head are nothing but a treat to watch.

During the 2nd T20I against Pakistan at the Manuka Oval, Smith played a few jaw-dropping cricketing shots. However, his majestic boundary off Mohammad Amir in the 17th over grabbed maximum eyeballs. It was a full-length delivery with not much room on offer. However, the right-hander stood still and caressed it towards covers and mid-off for a four.

The shot left many in awe of Smith’s batting.
