Steve Smith’s ‘I pull up ok’ – Confident injury won’t affect upcoming tour to India

Australian cricketer, Steve Smith, has stated that he is confident that he will be ready for the upcoming Border-Gavaskar Trophy set to begin on February 9, 2023 in India. Smith, who has been a key player for the Sydney Sixers in the ongoing Big Bash League, has scored back-to-back centuries for the team in his last two games. Despite suffering from back spasms in a recent game, Smith assures that he will be fit to play in the first Test.

Smith’s teammate, Nathan Lyon, has also missed the last two games for the Sydney Sixers due to knee soreness, raising concerns ahead of the Australian team’s tour of India. However, Smith has reassured that both he and Lyon will be ready for the first Test.

Considered to be Australia’s best player against spinners, Smith will be crucial for the team as they face India on their home turf, where Australia has not won since 2003. With India’s spin-friendly conditions, Smith’s ability to tackle spinners will be a valuable asset for the Baggy Greens as they aim to break their losing streak in India.
