Former India captain Sourav Ganguly is impressed by Australia’s run-machine Steve Smith's ability to successfully switch formats.
While leading Pune Supergiant in the ongoing Indian Premier League, Smith guided his team to a seven-wicket win over Mumbai Indians in their opening match, scoring an unbeaten 84 off 54 balls.
"He is in outstanding form at the moment," Ganguly, who captained Smith during his time at erstwhile Pune Warriors, told reporters on the sidelines of a store launch at Kolkata on Friday.
Steve SmithHe is just a quality player and currently one of the world’s best batsmen. He showed his class by switching formats so swiftly in such a short time.
Smith plundered runs in the recently-concluded Test series against India, which his side lost 1-2. The 27-year-old right-hander finished as the top-scorer with 499 runs at an average of 71.28, including three centuries.
