Kolkata: Former India captain Sourav Ganguly is impressed by Australian run-machine Steve Smith's ability to successfully switch formats.
Leading Pune Supergiant in the ongoing IPL, Smith guided his team to a seven-wicket win over Mumbai Indians in their opening match, scoring an unbeaten 84 off 54 balls.
"He is just a quality player and currently one of the world's best batsmen. He showed his class by switching formats so swiftly in such a short time," Ganguly said.
Smith plundered runs against in the recently-concluded Test series against India, which his side lost 1-2. The 27-year-old right-hander finished as the top-scorer with 499 runs at an average of 71.28, including three centuries.
