With not much time left for T20’s big event, Australian batting sensation Steve Smith revealed his biggest fear for T20 World Cup. Smith being confident about his team feels one obstacle stand between Australia and the World Cup trophy and it’s none other than India skipper Virat Kohli.
Recently, Smith was asked about his take on being compared to India skipper and he recollected the qualities Kohli has and praised him for his simplicity and called him a great captain.
“Virat Kohli is an absolutely terrific player. His numbers just speak for themselves. I think he’s an incredible player in all three formats and I think we will see him break many records. He’s already broken plenty of them and I see him breaking many more over the years. He has the hunger for runs and doesn’t stop getting them. Hopefully he can stop getting them against Australia, that’ll be nice,” said Smith.
Smith spoke of an incident that happened during the ICC’s World Cup 2019 when the two countries were playing with one another, the fans were shouting slogans doesn’t him at the stadium and it was Virat Kohli who had silenced the fans and asked them to applaud Smith. Smith was humbled by the gesture and said, “It was great seeing Virat in the World Cup. There was no need for them to do it but it was a great thing to do and I admire him for that”.
Smith returned to cricket shortly before the World Cup 2019 after a year long ban for ball tampering.
