Highly impressive, Mr. Smith

215 off 346.  Brilliant innings by Steve Smith.  A double century at Lords but to be finished by the reverse sweep lbw!

Reminded me of another fellow named Michael Clarke who put a number on India in a 2012 Test.  Honestly, the whole trip to Australia was a failure (we were whitewashed) but that Clarke performance consisting of 329 not out will be forever etched in my memory.  No matter what Yadav, Khan, Sharma and others did, they just could not get Clarke out.  To say it was brilliant would be an understatement.

Now only if he can recapture that past excellency....

P.S:  Johnson's full length delivery to get Ballance was a thing of beauty.
