Steve Smith can be world's best batsman since Sir Bradman: Ricky Ponting
Legendary Australian batsman Ricky Ponting thinks Steven Smith has the potential to be the greatest batsman since Sir Donald Bradman. The former Australian captain Ricky Ponting said, “If Smith keeps maintaining what he's doing now for another 100 Tests, then he probably will end up being a better player than me. He's not doing much wrong at the moment, is he? I know he's got great passion and a great drive to be the best player he can be and probably the best player the world has ever seen, which is a great attitude to have,” Ponting added. Sir Bradman with 6996 runs with the avg of 99.94 and Herbert Sutcliffe with 4555 runs at 60.73 vavg are the only two players to have more a better average than Steve Smith who has been in an amazing form. In Tests, he has scored 4888 runs from 51 matches with an average of 60.34 including 18 centuries and 20 fifties.
