New Delhi: Indian icon Sachin Tendulkar lauded Steve Smith for his exemplary batting, saying the former Australia skipper’s “organised mindset” and “complicated technique” set him apart.

“COMPLICATED TECHNIQUE but an ORGANIZED MINDSET is what sets @stevesmith49 apart. Incredible comeback!#ENGvsAUS,” Sachin posted on Twitter.

 

Smith aggregated 774 runs from seven innings at a staggering average of 110.57 in the recent Ashes series vs England.

Smith has a unique batting style, which is both unorthodox as well as genius and Tendulkar tried to explain the Australian’s game in his social media post. “In the first Test, the English bowlers tried to get him caught behind the wickets with slips and gully in place,” Sachin said.

“And Smith just shuffled across and exposed his leg stumps to cover the line, and was selective and smart in his approach. At Lord’s, they had leg-slip for him on occasions and a few short-pitched deliveries against Jofra Archer got him in trouble as he tried to cover the line with the weight on his back-foot,” he added.

 

“He worked on his technique very smartly. That is why I say, ‘complicated technique, but extremely organised mindset’.”
