Pakistan speedster Mohammad Amir reckons that Steven Smith is the toughest batsman to bowl. Smith has own perfect technique and it is difficult to breach his defense. In fact, at times it looks that Smith can be a perfect contender for a Leg Before Wicket dismissal.
He exposes his stumps to the bowlers. However, his initial movement and strong game on the pads makes him almost unconquerable. Smith has been able to fool the best bowlers and they fall in his bait to bowl to his pad. However, the former Australian captain has his own methods which makes him the best Test batsman.
On the other hand, Mohammad Amir is also one of the best fast bowlers in the world.
