Australian batsman Steve Smith has praised the reverse swing of Pakistani bowlers. The way the pitches are in Pakistan, the ball swings a lot.

Talking to media persons about the experience of the game in Pakistan, Steve Smith said that he faced a reverse swing in the Test series against Pakistan.

“When I came to bat, the ball was swinging a lot, I guess the next ball is going to swing a lot too,” he said.

“I think reverse swing was the hardest thing to do. The way the pitches are in Pakistan, the ball swings a lot,” said Steve.

The Australian batsman added: “Bowlers like fast bowlers Shaheen Afridi and Hassan Ali are great for these pitches. Playing in Pakistan requires tempo and patience. Shots can be played with the new ball. I played in the third Test.

“As soon as the ball is soft, then the swing starts. When the ball swings, then you have to deviate from your plan. In Pakistan, I played according to my plans but did not score centuries,” he said. Could

Steve Smith said: “I have not been able to play very aggressively in Pakistan. I have improved my standing to play spinners.”

It may be recalled that this year, 24 years later, the Australian team came to Pakistan to play three Tests, three ODIs and a Twenty20 International.
