Shortly after Dinesh Karthik stepped down from the captaincy role of Kolkata Knight Riders on Friday afternoon, there was a little whisper around the corners on social media after Steve Smith following the same path. Rajasthan Royals’ Twitter handle too had teased the fans with a with picture of Jos Buttler along with a cryptic message. The rumours were rubbished off by the Royals’ Twitter, but any veteran and analysts of the game felt that Smith might be replaced or dropped amid his poor run of form. An evening later, Smith played one of his best innings since the two half-centuries he scored at the start of IPL 2020, to revive the Royals in their Dubai tie against Royal Challengers Bangalore on Saturday.
