According to Steve Smith, when he learned that he would have to switch to the No. 4 spot in order to make room for Travis Head when he returns, he was rather taken aback.

Head’s hand injuries had cost him a great deal of job advancement. He was struck by a ball from South African pacer Gerald Coetzee which resulted in the injury. He was unable to play in the first games of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup in India due to an unfortunate occurrence that resulted in a fracture of his left hand.

It is anticipated that the Australian batsman will recuperate rapidly and take over Marsh’s spot at the top of the order. Where he had been opening the batting in his absence. Principal selector George Bailey attested to this.

Smith said he was a bit shocked to hear from the management to bat at No.4

Smith continued by saying he was a little taken aback to learn that, upon Head’s return, he would be batting at No. 4 according to the management. The top batsman stated that batting at number four will require a different kind of mindset, as reported by Sen Cricket.

Smith said he would do whatever the team management requires him to do.

It’s a different sort of mindset, I think, when you come in at three to four,” Smith told the media.

So yeah, I got told if Trav was playing that I was going to be batting four.

I’ll do whatever the team wants. I’ve got a pretty good record at three, so I was a bit shocked in a way, but I’ll do what I need to for the team.”

Smith bats at number three and has an average of 52.84. He has scored more than 4,000 runs from that position. He bats No. 4 for Australia, and his average falls to 34.31. Before, the Australian hitter had declared that No. 3 is his favorite position and that he is prepared to move on when Head returns.
