Australia’s assistant coach Andrew McDonald believes that the plan of Indian bowlers to throw consecutive bouncers against Steve Smith, like Neil Wagner, will not hold true. Smith was dismissed by New Zealand left-arm fast bowler Wagner four times during the Test series in the 2019–20 season. During this time, he targeted Smith’s body and threw short balls continuously. Even after facing trouble on short balls, McDonald said that Smith’s batting showed no weakness.

He said on Sunday, “I know that in a Test match, Archer’s ball hit his helmet. But he has been able to score runs after his comeback. This scheme was also adopted against him in ODIs and T20 cricket but he was successful in scoring runs. “McDonald said, therefore, I do not see it as a weakness. If they (Indian bowlers) want to, they can try this scheme. The Indian team adopted the scheme against Smith in the three-match ODI series in January, but the 31-year-old batsman proved himself by playing innings of 98 and 131 then.

McDonald said he has worked on the plan before. This gives the best chance to stop the run and dismiss them. But in the last series against India, he was able to overcome it easily. I think the same will happen in the next series. The Indian team will play T20 International series of the same number of matches after the three-match ODI series on 27 November. The four-match Test series will begin in Adelaide from 17 December.
