Steve Smith is probably the best scourge in the world with its ability to beat as required in any game format. There’s a battle he’s enjoying with another top-class batsman They grow kohli as the duo often tops the ICC rankings.
However, later, Smith’s ability to score quickly in the shortest format of the game is under the scanner. And the impact of that had fallen during the recent one IPL A 2021 auction in which the former Rajasthan Royals captain was forced to participate after being fired from his franchise. The Australian batsman, who had a price tag of 2 kroner, went to Delhi Capitals for theft, as he could only take 2.20 rupees at the auction.
While many could not believe Delhi’s luck to take a first-class batsman for cheap, former Australian captain Michael Clark fears that Smith may find an excuse to give up the IPL because the money is too low to spend so much time away from home.
“You’re talking about Steve Smith – if he’s not the best batsman in the world, he’s not far away. Virat Collie is number one, but Smith is in the top three, “said Clark in a podcast at the Big Sports Breakfast.
“I know his performances at T20 weren’t as good as he’d like – last year’s IPL wasn’t great. I’m very surprised he went for the amount he has, just under $ 400,000 – which is still good money.
“But when you look at what he’s getting (last season) and his role as captain of Rajasthan, don’t be surprised if there’s a little tension in the lower leg on the day the plane has to fly to India.
“To leave for an eight-week tournament and quarantine before the start of the tournament – call it 11 weeks. I don’t think he will give up his family and partner for 11 weeks for $ 380,000.
“I’m really interested to see if he doesn’t have a tight tendon and doesn’t go. Or if the other one goes and he says I want to go and play this T20 World Cup and I want to be taken for more money in the next IPL. I’ll go there, I don’t care about the money and I will prove that people are wrong. “
