Some players are widely known and talked about for their animated on-field reactions. Virat Kohli in undoubtedly one of them, while David Warner and Steve Smith are prominent names from the Australian side. While Virat Kohli is enjoying some off time in Nainital, Steve Smith and David Warner are both playing for Australia in the ODI series against England.

 

Australia is already 1-0 up in the series after winning the first ODI by six wickets on Thursday (17 November). Steve Smith was seen back in form as he played a brilliant unbeaten knock of 80 off 78 deliveries. He once again was in headlines from his knock on Saturday (19 November). The veteran Australian batter missed a century by 6 runs as he scored 94 off 114 deliveries before falling off Adil Rashid in the ongoing second ODI.

 

Apart from his performance, a video of him trying to smash a reverse slog on Adil Rashid’s delivery is doing the rounds. Although he failed to hit the ball, his reaction was epic as he once again yelled for his failed attempt.

 

In the 32nd over of the first innings, Smith tried to play Rashid’s loopy outside off-stump delivery, going for a reverse slog hoping it clears over off-side. However, he missed it completely, with Sam Billings, who was placed behind the wickets grabbing it. He looked frustrated and yelled for missing an extra ball.

 

Watch the video:

 

The two nations will be locking horns in the third and final ODI of the three-match series on Tuesday (November 22) at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
