Steve Smith has been in the form of his life in the ongoing Ashes series. On Thursday, Smith went on to score a double ton, thus helping Australia to a mammoth first innings total of 497. But despite all his plaudits, Indian cricketing legend has picked someone else to be Australia’s key player in the ongoing 4th Ashes Test in Manchester.
In a tweet, the former batting maestro named the off-spinner Nathan Lyon to be the game changer in the match. “My instincts say that Nathan Lyon is going to be the key player for Australia in the remaining part of this Test,” the 46-year-old wrote on his official Twitter account.
Meanwhile, Tendulkar had earlier given an explanation on Twitter regarding what sets Smith apart from the rest after the latter’s double century. He was so impressed by Smith’s batting that he took to twitter explain the Australian’s method of batting.
“COMPLICATED TECHNIQUE but an ORGANIZED MINDSET is what sets Steve Smith apart. Incredible comeback,” he wrote on Twitter.
