    Smith's got a stronger case than most tho.


    I'm just happy Smith's craziness is channeled into scoring runs rather than world domination tbh.

    He's one determined SOB.

    He just gets into the zone and stays there. It's incredible.

    Still rate that 40-odd against SA in Hobart as one of the best innings I've seen from him. He just looked angry. Confused as to why his team were getting out. I doubt coaches will be advocating his technique, but they will be trying to instill that sense of hunger and pride in young batsman. That's enough for me.

    I don't see why not. If it works for him there's bound to be others it can work for.

    I think what Steve Smith shows us is that batting how you feel fit with hunger to learn, adapt and score runs > batting in a way that is 'correct'

    To insist new generations try to bat like Smith would be to miss the point entirely.

    Lot of players have shown this repeatedly. Sehwag being the previous example.

    Without a doubt the funniest thing about the Steve Smith thing is that he hadn't scored a FC ton for like 18 months when he got recalled to the test team
