IPL 2019 | ‘You’ve Cost Me a Phone’, Smith Tells Unadkat After SRH Win

After winning their last home game of the season against Sunrisers Hyderabad by seven wickets, Steve Smith and player of the match Jaydev Unadkat engaged in a light-hearted conversation, with captain Smith playfully accusing the fast bowler of costing him a phone with his performance!

Despite taking a stunning catch, Smith lost out on a sponsor award given to the player with the best catch in the match to Unadkat, who took three.

“You’ve cost me a phone!”, Smith told Unadkat in a video posted on the official IPL Twitter account, to which he replied, “I think your’s was better for sure but just because I had three catches, maybe I got it on the count!”

Smith has one more game remaining this season with the Royals before he joins the Australian team camp, and he spoke about playing in Jaipur, and the season overall.

“I never actually played a game here at home, in Jaipur,” Smith said. “We played in Ahmedabad, Dubai, Abu Dhabi. But I never actually played a game here. This year has been great, the support that we’ve got here has been exceptional. Fortunately, we’re able to finish our home season on a winning note.”

“One more game for me, and then I leave the boys so hopefully we keep on winning and you never know buddy, we’ll see!”

Rajasthan are placed sixth on the IPL table after their win over SRH, and are still in with a faint chance of qualifying for the playoffs if they win their remaining games. Their next encounter is against Royal Challengers Bangalore at the Chinnaswamy Stadium on Tuesday.
