Australian skipper Steve Smith might be topping the run charts in recent times, but that hasn’t completely satisfied the New South Wales star. Smith recently admitted that he was eager to improve further and achieve the form he had during the previous summer against India.

“I actually felt extremely good within my game, and everything was just falling into place,” Smithsaid. “The Test series against India, I actually said to my partner and I said to Brad Haddin as well, ‘I don’t think they are going to get me out this summer’.”I’m probably not feeling quite as good at the moment. “But that’s the game of cricket and you’ve still got to go out there and do a job.” “Hopefully I can start feeling that way again, when you can start to feel untouchable in a way,” he added.

Smith also revealed a bizarre episode, where he couldn’t hold the bat properly. “I quite often, believe it or not, forget how to hold the bat,” Smith revealed. “In the Perth Test match this year, in the first innings just before I got out trying to hit one into Gloucester Park trots, I forgot how to hold the bat. “I was putting the bat on the ground and picking it up. “Normally it’s in the nets when that happens, but it’s happened once in the middle and hopefully it doesn’t happen too many times.”
