Various Heros Aries for Australia.
Another thing is that there are different heroes in the Austalia team apart from Smith. who came to rescue their team on the important moments. Tim Paine played some crucial knock and he is fantastic behind the stumps. The selection of Tim was criticised but he proved his selection right by his performance. All the bowlers of Australian team up to the mark. They contribute in the different segments of the series. M Starc (22), P Cummins (23), J Hazlewood (21) & N Lyon (21).
Steve Unstoppable Smith.
Steve with unorthodox technique is proving the world that technique doesn’t matter in test cricket runs matter. The better technique batsman like Root is very far behind compare to him. He is the biggest wall standing between England and their chances of the win. They won’t break the wall. Instead of breaking they came under it. His best innings definitely the innings that he played at Gabba. Where his team was tottering at the score of 90-4. he came and scored the gritty and slowest century of his career. He leads his team by an example. The true inspiration for many other crickets.
