Australian and Rising Pune Supergiant captain Steve Smith is off to a vacation in Dubai during the 6-day break which RPS has got before their next game against Sunrisers Hyderabad on 22nd April. They played their last encounter on 16th April against the Royal Challengers Bangalore and returned triumphant quite comprehensively by 27 runs.
Taking to his Instagram handle Smith posted a picture of an Acai bowl which he was enjoying during his break to Pune. It will definitely be a much –needed break for the captain who has had a hectic few months. The Australian team has been in India for a long time now where they have put up some really exceptional performance.
The inexperienced Aussies gave India a run for their money and eventually narrowly lost the series by a 1-2 margin. Smith was the standout performer for Australia during the series which included 3 centuries. He looked in ominous touch and treated the Indian bowlers with disdain. He was the only Australian batsman throughout the tour who was hardly troubled by any of the Indian bowlers.
Even in the opening encounter for his franchise, the Rising Pune Supergiant captain an exceptional knock of 84 of a mere 54 deliveries which guided Pune to a sensational victory against the two-time time champions Mumbai Indians. Following that encounter, RPS lost 3 matches on a bounce and finally made a comeback against the Royal Challengers Bangalore on 16th April.
“Ducked off to Dubai for a couple of days in my 6-day break and discovered some magnificent Acai bowls #pineappleexpress @pineappleexpresscafe,” Smith wrote on his Instagram handle. In the last few years, Smith has taken his game to a whole new level and is regarded as the modern master of the game. His name is taken in the same breath with AB de Villiers, Virat Kohli and Kane Williamson who are his competitors in world cricket at the moment.
