An insight into the mind of Steve Smith is always fascinating viewing, particularly when he offers his methods of stroke-making. Arguably the batter of his generation, Smith has plundered runs with all kinds of shots, but the pull shot is one he has mastered particularly emphatically. Here, he encourages players to use the shot to a variety of deliveries, and his willingness to do just that is one of the many reasons such a multitude of fast bowlers find themselves at a dead end when trying to dismiss the Australian talisman. As the Ashes approaches, the site of England's tormenter honing his form will get some fans' nerves going.
