    im sure teams have already compiled this (then again, international teams can be really dumb) but it would be interesting to see a dismissals compilation, especially of when he's out early.

    I haven't done this exactly but from memory it's pretty standard dismissals. Mostly good line and length balls edging behind and a few lbws. More so a good length just outside off.

    Hes an extremely rare case of a sportsman who has psyched virtually every opponent out

    Reality Smith is like most batsman in the history of cricket who can play the short ball

    Keep it on or around off stump and maybe a touch further up than normal

    Get funky and get destroyed

    Get too straight and get destroyed

    Get too wide and he will outlast you

    Don't think he even played and missed in that second innings. Looked so solid.

    Just before he goes out to bat, sneak in and wrap his bat grip in coloured tape, forcing him to anxiously try and remove it before being timed out.

    That happens and Australia sacrifice a different batsman to the dismissal.

    Use more tape, obviously.

    And watch him score 140 odd from the other end.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Smith remembers the exact details of every single one, the bowler, mode of dismissal etc. like McGrath did with his victims.

    One area of potential weakness is that his average against spin when the ball is turning away from him isn't all that special, which probably shows why Sri Lanka, South Africa and Bangladesh have had more luck against him than other teams.

    Beyond that you either need a minefield or hope to get him out before his eye is 100% in. Otherwise.....
