When we talk about batting in the modern day era, many believe this to be an art but the contemporary players continue to defy all the logic that certainly ruled the game’s dynamics at least in the previous century. Batsmanship is all about scoring runs and as long as you continuing doing it, there’s nothing that can stop you even if it is on the expense of compromising with the conventional ways that defined this art.
Mentioning about defying logic, there’s one man who’s certainly been doing this for a long period now, the Australian captain Steve Smith already finds his name in the history of the game for being one among the most successful batters of his time. The right-handed batsmen started his career as a leg-spinner but given the opportunity to bat has been exceptional with the unorthodox skills that have enabled him to muster 6,057 runs from 61 Tests at a mind-boggling average of 63.75 is an indication about his exploits over the years.
Smith’s success mantra revealed
The 28-year old might not seem to be the most pleasing while batting but is quite effective with that bat in his hand once he steps on the field with the baggy green over his head. Smith has been a sensation in test cricket and when others continue to find ways to expose his loopholes, his teammates, Nathan Lyon, Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins reveal the success mantra for their captain. In a video released by cricket.com.au, the partners in bowling find themselves lucky enough to bowl to the gentlemen only in the nets, as Lyon refers him as a freak and Cummins shares about his mindset with Starc says how he looks to bounce him out in the nets.

Smith’s exploits are hidden to none as he continues to embrace conditions that don’t even suit his style of batting, especially in the longest version of the game. His love for his batting is immense and is certainly the best in business even when he aspires to learn from others and incorporate a multi-dimensional view of his game. His stature as a batsman has grown by many folds as he attains the second highest test ratings after the great Sir Donald Bradman in test cricket. The Australian skipper is way ahead of his contemporaries as he continues to lead from the front with those daddy hundreds, 21 of them coming in the last four years at an astounding average of 76.
Australia is scheduled to play the Proteas in the four-match test series in the upcoming month, it would a daunting task for the visitors but if their skipper continues his sublime form from the Ashes, there’s a definite possibility for a hiccup for the home side.
