The potential return of Steve Smith as a nemesis for India in the World Cup final

1 min read

Steve Smith has been a thorn in India’s path in ICC events as he smashed a century in the 2015 WC and then again scored a fine ton in WTC Final.

Team India will be wary of the Steve Smith threat in the IND vs AUS World Cup final. The right-handed batter has had a solid record against the Men in Blue and never fails to perform in crunch situations. Steve Smith has scored back-to-back centuries against team India in the knockout matches of ICC events.

Smith smashed century in the 2015 World Cup against India. The senior Australian batter stroked 105 runs in 93 balls as the Aussies thumped the Men in Blue by 95 runs.

Recently, Smith once again shattered Indian hopes as he scored 121 runs in the World Test Championship (WTC) final as the Australians lifted the WTC mace by defeating India by 209 runs.

The New South Wales batter has not been in his personal best in the ongoing tournament. However, Smith’s experience and ability to play spin makes him the best candidate to tackle Indian bowling line-up.
