Steve Smith on batting stance: “It (my stance) depends on who’s bowling, how the wicket is playing, how I want to score and how people want to get me out, that probably depends how open I am. It also depends on how the field is set, where you are looking to score – everything comes into play.
“When my backfoot goes back towards off stump, and sometimes even outside it, I know that anything outside my eyeline isn’t hitting the stumps, and you shouldn’t get out if the ball is not hitting the stumps. So that began to limit the way I could get out. Sometimes I get trapped in front and you have to just say well done (to the bowler), but if it is outside my eyeline I don’t need to play at the ball.”
