Steve Smith Continues to Play Despite Flu

Smith got his lowest score in the series

Steve Smith got bowled out during the second day of the final Test at The Oval in London. The Australian cricket team was bowled out for 225. Smith revealed that he was suffering from flu and he has been taking tablets. 

‘I’ve been struggling a little bit today. I’ve got a little bit of the flu. I just tried to stay as focused as I could be throughout the day’, Smith said.

Smith was the highest-scoring player in his side, however, due to his illness, he was dismissed on 80 by Chris Woakes. It was his lowest score in the series to date. He wasn't bothered with what people say and he just continues to bat in the field. 

England’s fast-bowler Jofra Archer noticed that there’s something wrong with the right-handed run machine ‘It might just be my perception of it but he didn’t look as nailed on as he usually is’, Archer said. ‘I knew there was something’.

The two opposing players had a duel during the second Ashes Test. Smith was struck by Jofra Archer’s bouncer. He suffered a concussion and was put to rest for the third Test. After being rested, he returned to the fourth Test and scored a massive 373 runs in three innings.

The Ashes began on August 1 at Edgbaston. Australia retained the Ashes urn during the fourth Test at the Old Trafford. Check out more information about Test cricket at Betwala’s page.
