The Ashes 2019 series is expected to go down to the wire with neither of the teams leaving any space for the opposition to counterattack.

Australia's Steve Smith on Thursday slammed 211 as Australia declared their first innings at 497 for 8 on Day 2. He has been the stand out performer for Australia on the tour with  589 runs this series -- his first since completing a 12-month ball-tampering ban, including three hundreds, at a colossal average of 147.25.

Smith also reclaimed the top spot in ICC Test rankings from Team India skipper Virat Kohli. En route to his double hundred broke a number of records, including displacing Tendulkar from the second spot in the fastest to 26 Test tons list.

The Master Blaster (Sachin Tendulkar) has come out to explain what sets Australia’s Steve Smith apart from the rest after the latter’s double century which put Australia in command of the fourth Ashes Test at Old Trafford against England. 

Tendulkar, who was so impressed by Smith’s batting that he took to twitter explain the Australian’s method of batting. “COMPLICATED TECHNIQUE but an ORGANIZED MINDSET is what sets Steve Smith apart. Incredible comeback,” tweeted Tendulkar

Smith’s lowest total in four knocks this series the 92 he made at Lord’s. The 30-year-old former Australian skipper's knock demonstrated the art of Test-match batting. He faced 319 balls in total, including 24 fours and two sixes, in what was his third double century at this level, all made against England.
