Langer said in a conversation with the media, ‘I can’t believe the nonsense I’ve heard about Smith. This is complete nonsense. If anyone knows Smith, then he keeps doing some strange actions on the field.

Justin Langer further said, ‘I have laughed a lot about this thing over the years. I have spoken about it publicly and even in private that Smith is a bit strange. What Smith did at the crease, he does it in a lot of matches.

He said, ‘If someone says this for a millisecond then he will not be right at all. The wicket was very flat. It was like a cement wicket. You will need a 15 inch spike to dig the crease.

Nathan Lyon has also defended Steve Smith, saying that he is deeply disappointed by the way people have spoken about Smith.

Lion said, ‘Obviously we talked to him. We are in the bubble with us. I see them every day. But the way everyone has jumped on them, I am disappointed.

Lion added, “He has played almost 80 Test matches and he does it in every Test match. To be honest, I too have done this in every Test match. There is nothing wrong in this.

The off-spinner said, ‘Smith loves batting. We all know this. We also know that even if we do not bat in the remaining Test matches, he keeps thinking about batting.

Lion said, ‘They did this to help me. They were seeing where I should throw the ball. At what speed should we bowl. He will get everyone’s support from the Australian dressing room.
