Steve Smith confirms he is ready to play against Sri Lanka in 1st Test match

Before the first Test match against Sri Lanka Cricket Team, Steve Smith has given a big reaction about his fitness. He has said that he will be fully fit by the first test match and will take part in this match. According to Smith, he is completely confident to play.

Steve Smith said that playing one-day cricket with an injury can be a matter of concern. But there is no problem in red ball cricket. Smith did not take part in the last three ODIs against Sri Lanka. While batting in the second match, he became a victim of injury. In the first ODI. He played a match-winning half-century and scored 28 runs in the second match. In view of his injury, the Australian team wanted to save him for the Test matches.

I won’t mind playing matches – Steve Smith

Smith made it clear that he will take part in the Test series as he will not face any problem in running in these conditions. In a conversation with diggingsports.in, he said. If we were still playing one-day cricket then there would have been some doubts but in Test cricket I would have no problem. I field in the slips, so I don’t need to run much on the ground. Apart from this, you do not even need to run much in such conditions. Mostly here it is either a four or a run is found. So don’t worry about running.

When Australia toured Sri Lanka in 2016, Steve Smith was the captain of the team at that time and he scored the most runs in the three-match Test series. He had scored 247 runs at an average of 41.16 and this time also he will be expected to perform the same.

Dimuth Karunaratne (captain), Pathum Nissanka, Oshada Fernando, Angelo Mathews, Kusal Mendis, Dhananjaya de Silva, Kamindu Mendis, Niroshan Dickwella (wk), Dinesh Chandimal (wk), Ramesh Mendis, Chamika Karunaratne, Kasun Rajitha, Vishwa Fernando, Asitha Fernando, Dilshan Madushanka, Praveen Jayawickrama, Lasith Embuldeniya, Jeffrey Vandersay
