Steve Smith and his batting in test cricket is something that fans love to watch passionately. No doubt, Steve Smith is the best test batsman of current era, mesmerising audience with his composure while batting, his posture while hitting the ball, his trigger towards off stump with everything he does on the 22 yard.
During the first day of the second Test of the ongoing New Zealand’s tour of Australia in Melbourne Steve Smith again coerced the audience to have a keen look at his unique way of leaving the balls outside the off stump and help themselves a good laughter in what turned out to be a gruelling day of test cricket.

Steve , who came out to bat in the 22nd over of the innings after the fall of both the openers in the first innings of the match, showcased a new technique of leaving the balls outside the off stump.
New Zealand bowlers were in mid of a fine spell when Smith funnily left a ball from New Zealand pacer Tim Southee. We all know the shuffle he does towards off stump while playing a delivery, he did the same for a ball that was pitched outside the off stump, but after getting in line of the move, he pulled out suddenly showing his back to the ball and with his bat hovering out-side the leg stump.
These leaves from Smith are doing rounds across social media in a hilarious manner. Smith also did something similar in the ashes also and fans are circulating the compilation of the same in various social media platforms. These crazy moves were even tried by England fast bowler Jofra Archer emulating Smith in the nets.
Australia was in commanding position at 257/4 after put in to bat first by New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson at the end of the day. Steve Smith was unbeaten on 77 at the stumps.
Actually, he left that ball and practicing for the next ball🙏
