The ongoing most anticipated series is on the way where the first test was totally dominated by hosts whereas the Boxing Day Test is leaving some tremendous comeback from the visitors. With outstanding bowling efforts and batting performance, India will be more happy in trapping World No.1 Test batsman Steven Smith for a less run. The way Steven Smith had the records against India in last six years, he always single handedly dominated the Men in Blue.
While this time the story is much different for me, as the batsman is yet to score double digit score in the on going tournament.
Today he registered his third highest single digit score in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. In this tournament, Ravichandran Ashwin encountered him two times in a low run and now Bumrah came out of the syllabus and ruin his plans.
In the 33rd over, of the second ball where Bumrah bowled a accurate leg stump maximised which forced Smith to mark a shot which eventually left him losing his wicket. His effort for hitting short made him losing his wicket at low cost. The hilarious part is Jasprit Bumrah didn’t know that ball hit the stumps and was appealing for LBW, but skipper came and opened his eyes that Steve Smith has been got bowled.
The foundation of the wicket was so astonishing that even the No.1 batsman found helpless in finding any way to pick any area to run. In this season, Smith seems to be much hopeless over scoring run and Indian bowlers are dominating him with every possible way.

Right now team is fully dominating the hosts in this Boxing Day Test, and only hosts have the option to just put their all efforts to just put the visitors to the back seat which now seems almost far impossible.
