Steve Smith, arguably the finest contemporary batsman in test cricket is known for his weird mannerisms with respect to his batting. A fidgety character, he always needs to have everything spot on to function at his best. His ways of tucking at his pads before each ball. His style of leaving deliveries outside off, and his refusal of a run when batting at the strikers end leaves fans in awe and even disbelief. It s an experience in itself to watch Steve Smith especially if he is playing a long innings.
David Warner, back in Australia after IPL in a recent interview. Has thrown some light to Smith’s mannerisms at midnight hours. He said that if Smith is staying above your hotel room, the individual lodged below will hear tapping sounds at midnight hours and therefore may never sleep easily. Warner further added that Smith likes to test the weight of his bats with closed eyes.
