Former Australian captain and the current No.1 ranked Test batsman in the world, Steve Smith, recently shared his insights on the one thing that he absolutely hates about cricket.
Steve Smith has given plenty of interviews during the ongoing India tour of Australia where he has shared insights into his brilliant cricketing brain. The Australian batting spearhead recently gave an interview to fellow teammate and champion off-spinner Nathan Lyon.
The same was published by Channel 07- the Test series official broadcaster- on its various social media handles.
The interesting aspect of the interview came when Nathan Lyon asked Steve Smith about the least favorite thing he likes about cricket. Lyon would have expected Smith’s response to be ‘nothing’ but to his surprise, the Australian batsman said that he absolutely hates putting his cricket kit away at the end of the day.
Smith admitted that he hates putting his bat away once he is done with his batting sessions.
? What's the best ball you've bowled to get a wicket in Test cricket?
Lyon: "Bowling Sachin Tendulkar through the gate at Chennai was pretty cool."
Smith: "Yeah I've got Sachin in my pocket as well, caught bat pad."

Nathan Lyon further asked Steve Smith as to whether his friend and teammate Marnus Labuschagne has ever helped him pack his kits. To which, Smith revealed that the Aussie No.3 has indeed helped him pack his kits once.
“Marnus did do that once and let’s see if we can get another deal. I think, definitely.” Smith revealed.
