Keeping Steven Smith quiet has been one of the key factors in India’s strong showing against Australia in their ongoing series, which is tied 1-1 after both teams registered eight-wicket wins in Adelaide and Melbourne. So tight have India been to him that he hasn’t crossed double digits yet, with scores of 1, 1*, 0 and 8 so far.

Smith has been particularly troubled by R Ashwin, with the offspinner well ahead in his head-to-head battle with Australia’s best batsman. Ashwin has bowled 23 balls to him so far, of which Smith has taken only four runs – all singles – while being out twice.

Analysing the contest, Sachin Tendulkar praised Ashwin’s control, variety and planning for Smith.
