Steve Smith has said that with a slight change in the grip of his bat, he can play brilliant innings against Team India. Talking to Fox Cricket, he said, ‘I too was shocked by this. I think in all these years I have adopted two different types of grip. When I was batting my best in 2014 and in the 2015 World Cup, my upper hand was probably slightly below the middle of the back of the bat. In the last two years, I was batting with a slightly different grip. He was then asked how he found out the benefits of this slight change, so he said, ‘This happened during a net session during our separation three days before the first match (MCG on 27 November), in which I then called it (2014 And Grip 2015).
