Player-to-player battles are something which always raised the excitement levels for fans, especially in the game of cricket. In the latest, the battle between Yasir Shah and Steve Smith became the regular headliner with fans enjoying their duel on the field. Now, adding a bit of spice to it, Rajasthan Royals trolled Yasir Shah after Steve Smith reaching 7000 runs in Test cricket.

Yasir Shah got the upper hand on the field when the duo met each other in the longer version of the game. Even in the first game of the series, Yasir Shah cleaned him up to give a sleepless night for Steve Smith and his fans. However, in the second Test, Smith held his nerve to overtake Sir Don Bradman record of 6996 runs in Test cricket.

My seven is bigger than yours –

During his 36-run knock, he also became the fastest batsman to reach the mark. He overhauls legendary cricketers like Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag and Wally Hammond of England, who is holding the record for the past 73 years. Meanwhile, Rajasthan Royals, who tried to poke Yasir Shah, tweeted a picture of him, in which, he was showing seven with his fingers.

Rajasthan Royals shared the picture alongside Steve Smith’s celebration picture by captioning it ”My 7 is bigger than yours.” The post left fans in splits on social media. A few of them came up with hilarious replies as well.

As it happened:

It was a brilliant day at the office for Australian batsmen David Warner and Steve Smith. In particular, it was a memorable day for David Warner, who smashed a scintillating triple century. At one stage, he was expected to reach the 400-mark. However, the declaration from Tim Paine brought curtains on the hope of the fans.

During his stunning knock, David Warner became the first player since India’s Karun Nair made 303 not out in 2016 against England. He joins an elite club, which includes the opposition skipper. The West Indies Brian Lara’s 400 not out against England at St John’s in 2004 remains the highest Test score of all time.
