New Delhi: Steve Smith (61runs off 43 balls) and Shane Watson (44 runs of 21 balls) anchored Australia’s first inning total to a massive 193 against Pakistan on Friday in Mohali.

The shot brought Twitteratis abuzz who hailed Smith for his incredible shot.
In the World T20 series Australia have suffered a batting collapse in their loss to New Zealand before they huffed and puffed to beat Bangladesh by three wickets in their second match. Pakistan encounter is crucial for the kangaroos to move ahead in the tournament.
