Watch: Chair In Middle Of Pitch, Ice Pack - Steve Smith Desperate To Beat Rajkot Heat
Steve Smith tried his best to fight the Rajkot heat during the third ODI match between India and Australia.
It has always been quite challenging for Australian cricketers to adapt to the hot playing conditions in India and it was once again the case during the third ODI encounter in Rajkot on Wednesday. Steve Smith looked in good touch against the Indian bowlers but the sweltering heat and humidity proved to be the bigger challenge for him. During the 30th over of the Australian innings, there was a drinks break and Smith had a chair on the ground as well as an ice pack in order to keep himself cool. It look like he was feeling better but one over later, he once again asked for drinks to come in with the chair and the ice pack.
Smith did not stay at the crease for long and he was dismissed by Siraj in the 32nd over.
