Praising Steve Smith for his batting stance and cause motion, Sriram informed Gulf News: “He tells us the tale that his shuffle began when England pacers began bowling bouncers at him. He struggled first of all, after which hastily he began to shuffle and were given a few hook photographs and helped him get his first Test hundred. And then onwards, the shuffle stayed. So the shuffle came about in the course of an innings.
Even in India, when the ball used to be reversing, he were given 3 masses at the turning tracks. When Ishant Sharma and Umesh Yadav had been reversing the ball, he modified the cause motion. He changed into very open and used to be hitting in the course of the off aspect. So he’s any person who can trade his cause and stance right through the center of an innings, that’s one thing Sachin [Tendulkar] used to do. But I feel only a few other folks have that talent. They’re geniuses. And that’s the genius of Steve.”
