The match between India and Australia has come to life on the first day itself. Both Steve Smith and Travis Head put Australia in a strong position in the final of the World Test Championship. Australia did not get off to the expected start on day one of the WTC finals. However, after that both of them managed the innings. Meanwhile, a reaction of Steve Smith is currently going viral on social media.
The final of the World Test Championship 2021-23 is being played at the Oval Stadium in London. The fight started on Wednesday (June 8). Rohit Sharma won the toss of the match between the two teams and invited Australia to bat first. The Indian bowlers also got off to an expected start. However, later Steve Smith and Travis Head made the bowlers sweat. By the end of the first day’s play, Australia scored 327 for 3. Smith is on 95*, while Head is on 146*. By the end of the day’s play, the duo had put on a partnership of 251 runs.
That’s how this video of Smith is going viral. In the video, Smith liked a ball bowled by Mohammad Shami and praised the bowler for it. However, it is Smith’s reaction that is particularly discussed. “Smith should be rewarded for this reaction,” the ICC captioned the video while sharing.
Meanwhile, when Smith and Head open Australia’s innings on the second day of the match, he will have a chance to score a century. Smith would make his 31st Test century after just five runs. If Smith scores this century, he will surpass even Matthew Hayden. Also, this will be his ninth century in India vs Australia matches. With this century, he will surpass the likes of Virat Kohli, Ricky Ponting and Sunil Gavaskar. Smith will become the second highest century scorer in a match between India and Australia. First in the list is Sachin Tendulkar, who has scored 11 centuries. (Steve Smith impressed with Mohammad Shami’s amazing bowling)
