Australian superstar Steven Smith is among the best batsmen of the current generation. There is no bowling attack or condition in the world that he hasn’t dominated. So, when he showers praise on a bowler it really means a lot.

During a recent Instagram live session, the former Aussie captain was responding to questions from fans. When asked to name the fast bowler he finds difficult to face, Smith picked Pakistan’s talented left arm seamer Mohammad Amir.

“Mohammad Amir, I think is the most skillful I’ve faced,” Smith said.

Amir was banned from internation cricket for 5 years due to his role in the 2010 spot-fixing scandal that rocked Pakistan cricket. He was allowed to play international cricket after he served his ban and he has put in some great performances ever since.

It was Amir’s guile that helped Pakistan topple favourites India in the final of the 2017 ICC Champions Trophy. The left arm pacer has played 36 Tests, 61 ODIs and 48 T20 internationals for Pakistan.

Smith has himself made a stunning comeback to international cricket after being banned for a year due to his role in the ball tampering controversy against South Africa.
