With the suspension of all international sporting events, the action has now moved indoors, with a quarantine period being observed across the globe.
It was only recently that the Pandya brothers Hardik and Krunal posted a video of them balling around indoors with family.
Also, the likes of Kane Williamson and Shreyas Iyer were seen giving catching practice to their Labrador Retrievers.
This time around, it was Afghanistan’s spin sensation Rashid Khan who took the matter indoors and was seen imitating Steve Smith’s trademark leave.
Looking at the video, Sunrisers’ Hyderabad’s Twitter Handle shared the video by captioning, “Who wants to join @rashidkhan_19 for a game of indoor cricket? Imitations only! #OrangeArmy #SRH #StayAtHome #StaySafe.”

Soon after, Rajasthan Royals also joined in by sharing a GIF image of a compilation of Smith’s unique leaving technique. “So we’re not the only ones missing @stevesmith49?” captioned the post.

The Australian number three completed his redemption after piling on a mountain of runs in the Ashes series. The crowd which booed him upfront in the Test match at Edgbaston ended up giving a standing ovation to Smith in the Oval Test.
However, it was his odd technique of leaving the ball, which copped a substantial amount of limelight for Smudge.
