IPL 2019: Steve Smith is going from strength to strength after making his comeback to the Rajasthan Royals in the ongoing IPL. He is surely again back to doing what he does best, that gets runs and win matches. With backs to the wall, Smith walked into the middle as the newly made captain of Royals. He came into bat at the dismissal of Rahane. He took his time initially, but once he got his eye in he made the Mumbai bowlers pay. He scored a fifty and then finished the match. Smith remained unbeaten on 59* off 48 balls as Royals beat Mumbai by five wickets.

Here is how fans hailed the captains knock from Steve Smith:

This is a big win for the Royals as they had a change of leadership just before the match began. Rahane stepped aside after two wins from eight games as Smith took over. Rajasthan Royals become the second team to beat Mumbai Indians in four consecutive matches in IPL after Chennai Super Kings (2014-15).
