his biggest test (Source: PTI) Top News If Steve Smith thinks it’s all a bit cruel it would be understandable The city of Pune whose IPL franchise had anointed him captain over MS Dhoni is not allowing him to savour the moment Things are about to boil further here India decided the fate of Alastair Cook’s captaincy it could well now make or break Smith’s India could tilt the perception battle either way — glory or bust The stereotypes about shy unassuming fresh-faced Smith abound — from a lack of ‘presence’ usually associated with Australian captains and being conservative and defensive in his decision-making Whispers about Darren Lehmann being the all-powerful coach too have done the rounds It was Mahela Jayawardene the former Sri Lankan captain who best captured this perception problem with a tweet after Smith was sent home midway during a dismal series of Sri Lanka in December Australia had been whitewashed in Tests and Smith was convinced by Lehmann and selector Rod Marsh to head back to Australia after couple of ODIs to rest and recuperate for the future Watch What Else Is making News Out popped a tweet from Jayawardene “Surprised to see Smith going back home to prepare for SA tour when this one is not finished Would any other @CricketAus captain done this” Jayewardene tweeted There is also another line of thinking about him That this perception of him being a soft captain was incorrect and he has always been his own man There is this story from 2012 during his first year as captain of Sydney Sixers in the Big Bash T20 league in Australia Stuart Macgill the 40-year old then wasn’t too keen to roam as a boundary rider at fine-leg from one side of the ground to the other when the young captain Smith gave him a piece of his mind In the telling of Stuart Clark former boss of Sixers and former Australia player it ran thus “Smithy said ‘Look mate I am the captain you do what I say now f**k off and get down there’” Smith would also talk about the incident “I think MacGill was a little surprised at first but then he went to the position I had said” He has had to show who is boss all over again in the last six months or so a phase where Smith has turned increasingly grumpier on the field Once teased for his quiet ways he was now issuing public putdowns of his teammates He has fined Glenn Maxwell for tweeting his angst at batting below captain Matthew Wade in domestic cricket and wrote how he did it in front of the team in hope that embarrassment would effect a change in behaviour He has talked about being let down by the bowling of Nathan Lyon He has pulled up Mitchell Starc for throwing the ball back at a batsman and said he won’t put up with such behaviour He has also shown his displeasure with Maxwell for signalling for a DRS referral without consulting him He has thrown down the ball after taking a catch – interpretations ranged from his displeasure at dropped catches to his dissatisfaction with Lyon’s bowling until then It had been festering for a while The early days of captaincy had earned the fresh-faced Smith a lot of goodwill His predecessor Michael Clarke wasn’t always a popular captain and Smith was considered the ideal team man to lead As 2016 rolled on things began to slowly unravel He has been rammed in the press for being too conservative in not pressing for victories and settling for draws at times He was criticised by Mark Taylor for being a defensive captain Michael Vaughan called his tactics “ridiculous” on the day Pakistan threatened to pull off a heist on the final day in Brisbane nearly chasing down 490 The whitewash to a not-so-special Sri Lankan team was a “shock to the system” in the words of Steve Waugh who had said the series against South Africa and Pakistan earlier this year would define Smith’s captaincy The South African series turned out to be nightmarish and the make-or-break series against Pakistan was looking to get out of hand for him before things changed with a little bit of help from Pakistan It even brought in some praise from critics Taylor had begun to warm up to Smith during the third Test against Pakistan “I like just the little subtle changes” Taylor said “I love the fact he bowled Nathan Lyon first up this morning And the other benefit of this is now he’s got Mitchell Starc after Hazlewood to keep the pressure on” It’s one thing to do this against Pakistan who had well and truly begun to implode in that series by the time the last Test was ending The Indian series can throw up a lot of potential moments when one can turn against oneself as a captain Self-doubts can creep in when your batsmen begin to wobble against spin and your spinners fail to show control over their art In the past Smith has shown that he has overcome self-doubts and reverses to emerge as the best batsman in the world Sometime in 2007 a 17-year-old Smith was playing in a Surrey Second XI team and thinking about playing for England It seemed a sensible move to the kid – opportunities English mother and doubts whether his talent could get him near a baggy green cap Tony Ward a family friend who had earlier taken in the homesick kid into his home in Kent had to convince him that a future with Australia was bright In four years still relatively unknown in Australia he was in the national team for his legbreaks It was an uneventful debut but his captain Ricky Ponting talked up his “terrific enthusiasm” and advertised a lesser-known ability as a “highly talented batter” Erratic legbreaks and batting frailties outside off stump soon forced the hands of selectors but he would return after two years as a batting giant When Clarke retired Brad Haddin passed up the opportunity to become captain and pushed for Smith Runs have continued to flow unimpeded but captaincy has thrown in a few major speedbumps his way It’s clear that this Indian series would be his greatest test yet as captain For all the latest Sports

move Top News Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman Shaharyar Khan disclosed that the PCB had incurred losses amounting to USD 200 million because of the Indian team not playing bilateral cricket series in Pakistan “I informed the BCCI representative at the International Cricket Council (ICC) meeting recently that PCB had incurred losses of around USD 200 million because of India’s refusal to play us and these losses were mounting as the BCCI was not even honouring a legal agreement to play bilateral series between 2015 and 2023” he said Khan said that Pakistan was now awaiting the confirmation of the new draft constitution of the ICC which is expected to be approved in April to start legal process against the BCCI “The new draft constitution has a clause for a disputes resolution committee and once the constitution is final we intend to take our case against the BCCI first to this committee” he told reporters in Lahore Khan said the BCCI representative had told him in the ICC meeting that the Indian Board was willing to play with Pakistan but could not do this without first getting government clearance Khan said the BCCI official had said that because of government non clearance they saw the MoU not applicable as ‘Force Majeure’ “I told him that they should have thought about their government before signing the MoU which is a legal agreement as per our lawyers” he said “I told him that India had denied us two home series the losses of which were around USD 200 million” Khan added India has not played any bilateral cricket with Pakistan since 2007 although in the winter of 2012/13 Pakistan made a short goodwill tour to India to play a couple of limited over games India which plays Pakistan in ICC and Asian Cricket Council events last toured Pakistan in 2015/16 for a full Test series The PCB chief also said that even after the termination of the ‘Big Three’ system of governance and financial model India would end up getting the biggest share from ICC earnings “Even under the new draft constitution India gets around 16 percent share of all ICC earnings which is higher compared to other boards Under the Big Three formula India Australia and England were taking home more than 50 percent of the revenues with other boards getting far less” Khan said “It was not an equitable system of revenue distribution and we only agreed to it because India agreed to sign the MoU and play six bilateral series with us which would have allowed us to get financially stronger” Khan said while Pakistan led the move to end the ‘Big Three’ governance system and got 10 votes in support India as expected opposed the move “Their representatives appointed by the Lodha Committee asked for the matter to be deferred to the next ICC meeting in April but we pushed through the draft constitution which should be ratified in April after all Boards give their views on it and enforced by June” he said For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top

Korea test fired its most advanced intercontinental ballistic yet on Wednesday putting the US mainland within range and increasing pressure on US President Donald Trump to deal with the nuclear-armed nation Trump who has vowed to halt North Korea’s nuclear and missile programs spoke with Chinese President Xi Jinping and urged Beijing to rein in its ally North Korea North Korea said the new missile soared to an altitude of about 4475 km (2780 miles) – more than 10 times the height of the International Space Station – and flew 950 km (590 miles) during its 53-minute flight It flew higher and longer than any North Korean missile before landing in the sea near Japan Experts said the new “Hwasong-15” missile theoretically gave North Korea the ability to hit the US mainland including the East Coast although it was not clear whether it could carry a nuclear weapon North Korea which conducted its largest nuclear bomb test in September has tested dozens of ballistic missiles under its leader Kim Jong Un in defiance of international sanctions “After watching the successful launch of the new type ICBM Hwasong-15 Kim Jong Un declared with pride that now we have finally realized the great historic cause of completing the state nuclear force the cause of building a rocket power” according to a statement read by a North Korean television presenter Previous US administrations have failed to stop North Korea from developing nuclear weapons and a sophisticated missile programme Trump has also struggled to contain Pyongyang since he came to office in January Trump on Wednesday again urged China to use its leverage on Pyongyang and promised more sanctions against North Korea two strategies that have borne little fruit so far “Just spoke to President Xi Jinping of China concerning the provocative actions of North Korea Additional major sanctions will be imposed on North Korea today This situation will be handled” Trump wrote on Twitter In a speech in Missouri about taxes Trump who has traded insults with the North in the past referred to Kim with a derisive nickname “Little Rocket Man He is a sick puppy” Trump said China the North’s sole major ally has so far refrained from taking some of the most drastic steps against North Korea such as imposing an oil embargo White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said US sanctions would come very soon and would add “maximum pressure on North Korea” The latest missile was fired a week after Trump put North Korea back on a US list of countries it says support terrorism allowing it to impose more sanctions North Korean state media said the missile was launched from a newly developed vehicle and that the warhead could withstand the pressure of re-entering the atmosphere which if confirmed would be an important technical advance Kim personally guided the test and said the new launcher was “impeccable” state media said He described the new vehicle as a “breakthrough” North Korea also described itself as a “responsible nuclear power” saying its strategic weapons were developed to defend itself from “the US imperialists’ nuclear blackmail policy and nuclear threat” The UN Security Council was scheduled to meet on Wednesday to discuss the launch When the UN Security Council ratcheted up sanctions in September on North Korea in the wake of its sixth nuclear test it called on states to inspect vessels on the high seas with
