Steve Smith has hit the nets for the first time in three months, Australia’s premier batsman said in a social media post on Monday.
Australia are currently scheduled to play their first Test of the revamped FTP in November, against Afghanistan. It will be followed by the four-match Border-Gavaskar Trophy against India in December.
Smith has been a vital cog in Australia’s wheel especially in red-ball cricket where he is the No.1 batsman in the world at the moment.
Recently, former England captain Mike Atherton said Smith is someone he loves watching because of his unorthodox batting style.
He added that it’s not easy to find a way to get Smith out and it will be interesting to see how India devise a way for that when they tour Australia later in the year.
