Smith’s bat also caught fire against Hobart
Opener Batter scored 66 runs in 33 balls
New Delhi. Australian batsman Steve Smith is not taking the name of stopping. Seeing the manner in which Smith is batting in the Big Bash League, it seems that he wants to take out the pain in this tournament. Batter, who has scored 2 consecutive stormy centuries in the league, added 16 runs to his team’s account by facing 1 ball on Monday.
A match is being played between Sydney Sixers and Hobart Hurricanes in BBL on Monday. Hurricanes won the toss and decided to field first. Steve Smith came out to open with Josh Phillips. Joel Paris came to bowl the second over of the innings. On the third ball of this over, Smith hit a blistering six down the leg side. The umpire also called it a no ball and 7 runs were added to Sydney’s score. Paris threw the next ball wide which went beyond the reach of wicketkeeper Matthew Wade and went across the boundary. 5 runs came on this. Till now Paris had given 12 runs without throwing any ball. He put the next ball on the middle stump, on which Smith in his familiar style hit the leg side for a four. In this way Sydney Sixers scored 16 runs in one ball.
