Brett Lee, the Australian pacer, has picked his team fellow, Steve Smith over India’s skipper, Virat Kohli.
Lee thinks that Virat Kohli has suffered a lot and is going through tough times for more than a year and hence, picked Smith considering both players consistency and potential. Also, he termed Kohli as a great leader for his team.
Brett Lee picks Steve Smith over Virat Kohli
“Kohli is technically sound, he hits through the V, he used to knick off earlier in his career, but it is hard to do that now, he is a great leader of his side, I think he would love to win the IPL,” Lee said.
Who is better either Kohli or Smith, has been a fuming question for all. Virat Kohli has gone through a lot as he has not been consistent in all forms also his captaincy is suffering as he has failed to made it several times in the mega ICC events.
Brett Lee thinks Smith can be another Don Bradman after the struggle he is making for his team.
“At the moment I would choose Smith over Kohli because of what he has been through and what he has to overcome, they are two great players, I think Smith can be as good as Don Bradman, there have been talks of him becoming just like Bradman looking at the numbers,” opined Lee.
Smith made his comeback for Australia in 2019 as he was banned from Australian cricket as a consequence of ball-tampering. He did really well like a run-machine and scored many runs in the Ashes for his side.
“Steve Smith has been through a lot in the last couple of years, he has seen a rise with the way he played in the last 12 months, he is so fidgety, sometimes you are like just relax mate,” Lee added.
