Eminent Australian batsman Steve Smith says Indian team is ‘terrific with some outstanding winning matches and India is one of his favourite teams that might lift the title of t20 Wc in 2021. Kohli didn’t captain the team on the last day but came to the field as a bowling option.

Smith quoted when interviewed post yesterday’s warm up match that “They’re a terrific side, they have got all bases covered and some serious match winners in there. They’ve obviously been playing in these conditions during the last couple of months with the IPL so they’ll be used to that.” Smith bagged 57 off 48 balls in the game, however failing to win Thursday’s match by 8 wickets. Although it was a warm up game, players’ motivation may go up or down according to the results of the match. As happened with Steve! Team’s poor performance led his mindset down, but India’s outstanding performance with some second string players caught the notice of this legendary man.
