Steve Smith: When I am out there I pay no attention to the crowd

Smith went on to say that he has got the support of his team members, “It’s like we never left in a way. I know I’ve got the support of my team-mates up on the balcony and for me, that’s the most important thing."

Steve Smith says that he paid no heed to the boos by English fans in the warm-up match at Southampton. Smith, who is making a comeback into Intentional cricket after a year ban scored a marvellous hundred against England on Saturday.

Steve Smith was welcomed with boos at the start of his innings. He was booed again when he reached the hundred.

“It’s water off a duck’s back and it doesn’t bother me. I try to black it out,” said Steve Smith

“They call it ‘white noise’. When I’m out in the middle I don’t pay attention to the crowd or what they’re saying,” Smith said.

Steve Smith and David Warner were banned for ball tampering against South Africa last year. Most of the former Australian players called the ban too harsh.

Smith went on to say that he has got the support of his team members, “It’s like we never left in a way. I know I’ve got the support of my team-mates up on the balcony and for me, that’s the most important thing.”

The stand-in captain for England, Jos Buttler also praised his arch rival. Buttler believes that Smith was and still one of the world’s best batsmen.

“He’s the same player. He was a class player 12 months ago and he still is,” said Buttler.
