Steve Smith Almost Missed Out From The 2nd ODI Against India In Sydney

Steve Smith was the hero of the match for Australia in the 2nd ODI. He scored his 2nd ton in the ongoing series at Sydney Cricket Ground. He looked in full flow during the game and took an exceptional catch of Shreyas Iyer. But, he has revealed that it was not confirmed that he was going to take the field in the 2nd game against India or not due to a bad dose of Vertigo.

Australia maintained its winning streak in the ongoing ODI series. They dominated Team India with sheer dominance and thrashed Men in Blue by 51 runs. Steve Smith emerged as the architect of Australia’s impressive win. He played a match-winning knock of 104 runs. Before the one-day international series, he was criticized for poor strike-rate in the limited-overs. However, in this series, he has worked hard on his weakness. In both games, Smith scored consecutive tons in just 62 balls respectively.
