MustWatch 1: Hiral Patel’s knock – Across the 1st one and a half clips (Canada Bat)
MustWatch 2: Steve Smith’s expression after he bangs into Ponting (Canada Bat 4 – from the start)
One of the exciting things about watching Steve Smith do whatever he does is his underdosed-on-ritalin behaviour. But that look today. I still can’t stop laughing. He’s around 20 or 21 and there was a 16 year old Canadian playing, but he looked the youngest player in the tournament today after that Ponting bump.
Not defending Ponting, but if you just watched that incident in isolation, you’d have missed the fact that his problematic fingers had been giving him some trouble all day and put him in a pretty foul mood before that. I thought he did pretty well to take out his anger on the ball and avoid encountering Smith. But looking at Smith – well, he looked like he wished Ponting had slapped him instead.
