Steve Smiths weird dismissal after Sheffield Shield ton

Steve Smithhas been batting well across formats since his return to action forAustraliaafter a 12-month ban for a ball-tampering scandal.

Smith's century for the Blues came off a staggering 290 balls - representing the slowest scoring first-class century of the star batsman's career.

Along with his affected person knock, the 30-year-old batsman issued warning to the Pakistani bowlers - who have been wreaking havoc within the ongoing three-day observe match with Australia A - forward of the upcoming two-Check collection, beginning November 21. But what made news was his weird dismissal and his reaction after being given out.

After restricting the visitors to 106 for eight, Finch (52) and Warner (48) whacked five sixes and eight fours between them as they raced to the finish line without loss.

Steve Smith couldn't believe it.

Other than Smith's worthwhile contribution, Moises Henriques, Daniel Hughes, Daniel Solway and Pat Cummins scored fifties, serving to New South Wales attain 444/eight within the first innings.

Henriques and Smith put on 141 for the third wicket.

Italy flooding: More than 85% of Venice is under water
Venice Mayor Luigi Brugnaro attributed the flooding to climate change . "Now", he wrote on Twitter , "the government must listen". It is the second highest figure ever recorded in the city, following a 194-centimeter tide in 1966.

In reply, WA are on 85/1.

Smith was cramped for space by a short delivery from Marcus Stoinis and although he wanted to play it over the slips, the ball sailed straight into the hands of wicket-keeper Sheffield Shield clash Josh Inglis.

However, the right-handed Smith got out in a freaky fashion as the umpire judged him caught out when he was trying to play an uppercut off Marcus Stoinis' delivery.

But Smith did his job by then.

His feats include three centuries and as many half-centuries across seven innings in the Ashes 2019.

He will now be turning his attention towards Pakistan and one hopes to see him score freely against Babar Azam's men.
