A sigh of relief for fans of Steve Smith!! Steve has finally passed his second concussion test. The player is all set to set fire on the field once again. He can now take part in the second ODI test against England. He suffered an injury and was sent back to have good rest. The injury happened during his net practice from a throwdown by a coaching staff member. As a precautionary measure, the player was withdrawn by authorities.
The player was then lately withdrawn back from the First ODI of Friday. The match was although a win by the Australian team. They won by 19 runs to go 1-0 up in the three-match series.
The injury of Smith was a big headache for the team concerned as far. Although the first match was a win for them absence of Smith was felt on the field.
Other players wished Steve Smith well
Other players of the team were happy with the decision of the authority to give rest to Smith. All-rounder Marsh stated-“The decision for the rest to Smith was all good, unnecessary risks should never be allowed with a head injury as they can be fatal. The top order struck off without giving good scores was a problem in the last match. But Smith is coming back all well and good. That’s great to hear for me-he added.”
Asking Marsh about the Short ball being faced by Smith would be of what kind- “He stated England speedsters will be surely trying his skils on Short ball but, I know that is not a big deal for Smith. And I m looking forward to seeing that happen though. Smith has been a lover of Challenges. And he would back up with all his strengths and passion.
Micheal Starc also meets an injury
Left-arm Left-arm seamer Mitchell Starc also met with an injury. He experienced a deep groin pain. Although he successfully played 10 overs and ended up slipping in the field. All this led him to severe pain. But the player is also expected to return to the field on Monday.
This is for the first time, Australia has chances to claim bilateral ODI Series against England since 2015. And to end the recent dominance of Eoin Morgan and team in 50-over Cricket.
