Former Australian fast bowler Brett Lee believes Steve Smith will have a big innings and predicts a century in the third or fourth Test.
“I’m expecting a big one from Steven Smith, maybe 100 in this next Test, or the one after because I think that he’s coming off some really, really good form. He found his feet a little bit in the first Test match even though he didn’t get any big scores. But once again, I actually believe he’s due for a big one.”
Smith scored 37 and 25 in the Nagpur Test, but was out for a duck and 9 in the second innings in Delhi. In addition to his prediction,
Lee also said,” So hopefully for Australia, they pay off the positive momentum that Steve Smith brings to the team. As I mentioned, coming off a bit of a purple patch back in Australia, fresh off the BBL with a wonderful series, and just the way he’s looking at the nets but also to the way he is looked at the middle in very tough conditions. Watch out for Steven Smith. He’s due for a big one hopefully for Australia.”
