The Australian team captain lauded praise at Steve Smith

Australia retained the Ashes urn after their victory at the fourth Test at Old Trafford in Manchester. It is the first time they won the Ashes in England since the 2001 series. One of the players in the Aussies side who contributed greatly is Steve Smith. He made huge figures since the beginning of the Ashes 2019.

Australia team captain Tim Paine praised Smith for his vital performances. He described the batsman as ‘the best player I have ever seen’. In the fourth Ashes Test, Smith scored an astonishing two centuries and 82. He currently holds the number one spot in the ICC Test Rankings for Batsmen.

‘He's pretty handy, I won't lie. He's the best player I've ever seen. Obviously his 200 was phenomenal but yesterday to push the game forward put England under pressure. He's got a lot of courage to take teams on’, Paine said after the match.

Smith missed the third Ashes Test a Headingley due to a concussion. During the second Test, he was struck by Jofra Archer’s delivery. He was later replaced by Marnus Labuschagne. 

Paine also said that the Ashes 2019 is an unbelievable series and intense. He is proud of their side’s bowlers because they performed well in the match.

The two teams will face on the final Ashes Test at the Oval on September 12. Australia (-142) has the best odds to win against England (122). Check out the latest cricket odds at Betwala.
