Steve Smith has been out of action for few months now, with him not featuring in Indian Premier League and for Australia in T20 World Cup 2024. However, the man is back with a bang, and in his first game Of Major League Cricket for Washington Freedom, he played a match-winning unbeaten knock of 46 to take his side to a victory over MI New York.

In a rain-curtailed game, Steve Smith smashed 46 off just 28 balls with four fours and three sixes and Washington Freedom ended up winning the game by 4 runs courtesy DLS method. Out of the three sixes, one was the audacious scoop shot to Anrich Nortje, bringing back memories of Suryakumar Yadav and AB de Villiers.

How Steve Smith Humbled Anrich Nortje?

It was the first delivery of the sixth over and Anrich Nortje with a good performance under his belt in the T20 World Cup must have been confident against Steve Smith. However, the Aussie just moved across to his right to the length ball and scooped one of the fastest bowlers in the world over fine leg for a maximum.

It was followed by two more fours and a six and the over went for 22 runs which eventually made all the difference in taking Washington Freedom over the DLS par score when the rain arrived.
