The veteran Australian batter, Steve Smith is known for his unorthodox and bizarre style of batting and the New Zealand pacer, Trent Boult reminded everyone of Smith’s batting style by imitating his one-legged opened-up defense against delivery by Matthew Potts and held the posture to be noticed by the spectators. England and New Zealand are locking horns with each other in the opening Test of the three-match series at the iconic Lord’s.

England managed to restrict New Zealand to a below-par total of 132 runs and they looked in a commanding position in the first Test. James Anderson picked four wickets while Matthew Potts made a dream debut as he also managed to scalp four wickets including four maiden overs. The remaining two wickets were picked by Stuart Broad and Ben Stokes. However, during New Zealand’s innings, Trent Boult produced a remarkable moment to remind everyone of Steve Smith.

Matthew Potts was bowling the 36th over of the innings and he bowled a short-length delivery on the fourth ball to Boult. The batter then shuffled outside the off-stump and defended the ball with a one-legged opened-up stance just like Steve Smith. His technique and posture while playing the delivery reminded the spectators of the former Australian Test skipper.
