Australian captain Steve Smith, who has been scoring heaps of runs in the ongoing Ashes series, has also added to England’s woes with his brilliant presence on the field. At a time when England bowlers are yet to find a way to halt right-hander’s run-scoring spree, Smith has been showing time and again why is he also regarded as one of the finest fielders in world cricket.
On Day 2 of the 5th Ashes Test, Smith grabbed a stunning catch to remove English batsman Dawid Malan.
Malan, who had batted brilliantly on Day 1 to notch up his fifth Test half-century, could add just seven more runs to his account on Day 2 before he edged one towards slips off Mitchell Starc‘s bowling. Smith, who was stationed at second slip, dived full stretch towards his left to take an absolute blinder.

WHAT A CATCH! Steve Smith's golden summer continues! What a catch from the Australian Cricket Team captain!
