Steve Smith was supposed to be back in the Pink jersey leading the Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League this season but instead, he has to sit at home and try to find out ways to kill boredom as the world continues to be in a state of lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic.
With the IPL being postponed till April 14, Smith has no choice but to sit at home and wait out this difficult period.
But high-profile athletes such as Smith rarely get this kind of an opportunity to spend so much of time with their family, completely isolated from the rest of the world.
Smith as was asked about the same by Rajasthan Royals’ newly-appointed spin consultant Ish Sodhi about what he’s doing during the lockdown.
“Netflix and chill,” Smith replied. The duo are going to be part of the second video podcast for the Royals which will air very soon on the internet.
Sodhi also jokingly asked Smith about his facial hair.
“What’s going on with your face, mate?” Sodhi asked. “Isn’t it awful,” Smith responded before bursting into laughter.
