‘Only reason I went down to No 4 was…’: Smith reveals why he told selectors that he wanted to open in Tests

After scoring 9,514 runs at an average of 58, Steve Smith isn’t content with the returns and his batting position as the 34-year-old decided to move up to the top of the order in Test cricket. Smith, who as per his standards had a quiet series against Pakistan with just one fifty in six innings, revealed that he has been in selectors’ ears knowing that David Warner was going to finish in Sydney last week about him opening the innings and also admitted that since he is not the captain anymore, he can come to bat straight away without any baggage or pressure.
