With three fifties in this ongoing World Cup, Steve Smith has looked extremely solid. He has effectively negated the middle overs with his calm approach and has also played the big hits when needed.

Smith has a strong technique against spinners too and this means that Adil Rashid and Co. have a Himalayan task in front of them on Tuesday.

A sensational IPL and now fireworks in World Cup. David Warner is back with a bang and his runs at the top of the order are making Australia’s journey smooth.
