Australian batsman Steve Smith recently hosted a fun Q&A session on Instagram. The cricketer was flooded with a variety of questions related to his personal and professional life by his fans and followers. Smith expressed his opinion on many Indian cricketers ranging from Virat Kohli, KL Rahul to MS Dhoni and Rohit Sharma. He also talked about his most favorite cricket moments, tournaments, and upcoming series against India.
During the session, many fans requested Smith to describe Indian cricketers like Virat Kohli, MS Dhoni, and Rohit Sharma in one word. The Australian cricketer didn’t disappoint his fans and answered all their questions calmly. Smith hailed the current Indian skipper Virat Kohli as a ‘freak‘. Notably, Virat and Smith are considered as arch-rivals in the game of cricket. Both of them have done exceptionally well in their careers and are often compared with each other.
On being asked about Rohit Sharma, Smith called him ‘Hitman‘ while he labeled MS Dhoni as “legend” and “Mr. Cool”. However, Steve surprised everyone by picking up KL Rahul as the Indian cricketer who has impressed him the most. He praised Rahul saying that he is a very good player. Steve also shared his opinion on the former Indian legend Rahul Dravid. Talking about Rahul Dravid he said, “What a lovely gentleman and seriously good player!”
India is expected to tour Australia for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy in December-January this year. Also, they are scheduled to play a three-match ODI and T20 series against Australia. It would be interesting to watch the two teams play against each other as the last time India had outshined the Kangaroos in their home. India had registered their first test series win against Australia in Australia under the leadership of Virat Kohli in 2018-19. However, the two key batsmen Steve Smith and David Warner were absent from the team in that series. When asked about the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, Smith said, “Can’t wait. Going to be awesome“.
Also, the 31-year-old hailed Indian cricketer Ravindra Jadeja as the best fielder from the current lot. He also picked Pakistan’s Mohammad Amir as the toughest bowler he faced during his career.
