"I would grasp tried to injure him", he added.
Australia batsman Steve Smith wants to improve his batting record in the T20I as he feels it is not "crash hot".
Now ranked Test cricket's best batsman, Smith is No.27 in one-day ranks and not in the top 100 in Twenty20 cricket after not playing the short form for more than three years. He has no technique or style but has bravery. If he was playing in my time, would have definitely hit him.
Gilchrist, who works as a Fox Cricket commentator, is also a notable mentor for Carey, who recently spoke to ESPNcricinfo about their relationship: "I'm fortunate enough to have a good relationship with him now and I guess through the Big Bash it probably started with him as a commentator and myself getting into the Strikers team".
Ever since making a return after serving a ban for his role in the Sandpaper Gate fiasco, Smith has been in great form. Smith had an incredible Ashes series in England as he amassed 774 runs at a staggering average of 110.57 in the seven innings he played.
"After his comeback, he has scored tons of runs. Some people were saying he is not a T20 player but he has proven them wrong", Akhtar said.
Smith performed a match-winning knock of 80 runs in the 2nd Twenty20 global (T20I) in opposition to Pakistan to relieve Australia register a convincing seven-wicket victory. He averages just 27.48 in 35 matches, but that can be attributed to the fact that he initially was a leg-spinner and batted lower down the order. "I'm stunned how he does it. Steve Smith, you like to grasp considered, he has no technique, model but yet very tremendous", Shoaib Akhtar acknowledged in his most light YouTube video. It's never easy, so it's going to affect your record at some point.
Australia are due to play five more T20 series before next year's Twenty20 World Cup, with Langer set on playing close to his strongest line-up in every match in a bid to gather momentum.
Smith was at his irresistible best in Australia's T20 win against Pakistan in Canberra, smacking 80 not out as the home side chased down 151 with nine balls to spare.
