Melbourne: Veteran Australia batsman Steve Smith, who is considered to be Virat Kohli’s biggest enemy on the cricket field, said that India’s splendid team has some good match winners in the T20 World Cup and Virat Kohli’s team will be a strong contender for the title. Virat Kohli and Steve Smith are among the best batsmen in the world. There is often a comparison between Virat Kohli and Steve Smith as to which batsman is great.
Claims of Kohli’s worst enemy
India defeated Australia by eight wickets in the practice match. Rohit Sharma (60), KL Rahul (39) and Suryakumar Yadav (38) played useful innings. Kohli also bowled in this match, as India are looking for a sixth bowling option. Smith told the ‘Sydney Morning Herald’, ‘They are a great team and they have some great match winners.’ He said, ‘They have been playing in these conditions for the last few months as the IPL is already over. They have got used to here. Smith also scored 57 runs in 48 balls in this match and scored a half-century for the first time since March. He said, ‘It was nice to spend some time at the crease again. It is not easy after the fall of three wickets. “I didn’t play many matches in the IPL but spent a lot of time in the nets and it helped me adapt to the situation,” he said.
Steve Smith made fun of Kohli
Before the T20 World Cup, India defeated Australia by 9 wickets in their second warm-up match. A funny moment in this match caught the attention of the audience.

At the same time, as soon as Smith played a shot in the direction of long-off for a single off Kohli, he gave a funny reaction at that time.
