Australian cricket star Steve Smith has issued a warning to England ahead of the upcoming Ashes series. Smith, who is currently touring England with the Australian team, has stated that he is confident in his abilities and will be a formidable opponent for the English side.
Smith, who is widely regarded as one of the best batsmen in the world, has a formidable record in Test cricket. He has scored over 7,000 runs in 73 Test matches at an average of 62.84. In the last Ashes series in Australia, Smith was the leading run-scorer with 687 runs at an average of 137.40.
The Ashes series is set to begin on June 16th, with five Test matches scheduled to be played between then and July 26th. The series is seen as one of the most important in world cricket, with the rivalry between Australia and England stretching back over a century.
The series is also significant because it will be the first time that Australia has played Test cricket since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Australian team has been in England for several weeks, playing warm-up matches and acclimatizing to the conditions.
The Ashes series is expected to be closely contested, with both sides boasting talented players. England will be looking to avenge their defeat in the last series in Australia, while Australia will be hoping to maintain their dominance in the rivalry.
Smith’s warning to England is a clear indication that he is in top form and ready to take on the English bowlers. His performances in the last Ashes series were nothing short of outstanding, and he will be looking to replicate that form in the upcoming series.
