I’m fit now
Smith was hit in the head during practice during the limited-overs series with England. Due to this, he could not play in all three ODIs of the series. But now he is fully fit. He said, yes, I was out of three ODIs in England. But now I am in Dubai for many days and we have also done good training. I also started running a little yesterday, which is part of passing protocol and playing again. I have also practiced on the nets. So I hope I will play in the match.
Strong team told Chennai
About Chennai Super Kings, Smith said, Chennai and Mumbai are the two strongest teams of IPL. We have seen his game in the last match. Chennai Super Kings had a great performance in the end. But we hope that we will start our campaign positively. Let us know that the Royals won the trophy in the first season of IPL ie 2008. But after this, the team has not been able to repeat its success. However, this time the team has added some big T20 players with them. The team has a good mix of youth and experience, along with Robin Uthappa, Shreyas Gopal and Varun Aaron, along with Yashasvi Jaiswal, Ryan Parag and Karthik Tyagi.
