In a striking reproach to the selectors who overlooked him for the T20 World Cup 2024, Australian cricket veteran Steve Smith has unleashed a storm of runs in his debut at the Major League Cricket in the United States.

Smith, playing for Washington Freedom, has quickly turned heads with his explosive batting displays that left spectators and critics alike in awe.

In his inaugural match for Washington Freedom against MI New York, Steve Smith blasted a rapid 46 off 28 balls, propelling his team to a narrow four-run victory by the Duckworth-Lewis-Stern method. His innings was a critical factor in Washington’s win, setting the tone for what was to come.

The fireworks continued in Washington's second outing against the Texas Super Kings. After the Super Kings, led by captain Faf du Plessis—who scored a brilliant century (100 off 58)—posted a colossal total of 203/5, Smith and opener Travis Head responded with ferocity. The duo put on a blistering 62-run stand in just four overs.

Steve Smith's aggressive approach was highlighted in the third over when he hammered Zia-ul-Haq for two massive sixes.

The first, a magnificent hook off a slower short ball, soared over fine leg. He followed up with a hefty blow over deep square leg from a full-length delivery, showcasing his brilliance and intent.

Before the rain gods intervened with Washington Freedom at 62/0, Smith had notched up an unbeaten 26 from 13 deliveries, studded with three sixes, though the match ultimately concluded with no result due to the weather.

Despite the anticlimactic end to his second game, Smith’s performances have sent a clear message: he is here to dominate. 

As Major League Cricket 2024 unfolds, Smith's form has not only been a silver lining for Washington Freedom but also a stern reminder to the Australian selectors of the high-calibre talent at their disposal.
