But when asked about the same he said it “didn’t look great there for a while. I didn’t know I was playing today,” Smith told cricket.com.au.

“I had a really bad dose of vertigo this morning and I was struggling until … I came down early to have a hit and a bit of a run-around.

“The doctor, I think he performed six Epley manoeuvres on me this morning and got the crystals out of my ears and I was struggling for a bit.

“Just pleased to be able to get out here and play another good inning and help the team.”

Steve Smith leads Australia to win the series

Australia’s Steve Smith smashed a 105 in the first ODI and 104 in the second ODI which leads Australia to win the 3 match ODI series.

Smith even rated Sunday’s century better than Friday’s based on the fact that he didn’t offer any chances, but was able to play with freedom. Smith put on 138 with Marnus Labuschagne before Glenn Maxwell went berserk with 63 not out from 29 balls as the hosts racked up 4-389.

Team India struggles to make its comeback in the ODI format. Men in blue bowlers doomed team India by letting the hosts to score 360+ runs in both the ODI matches played so far. India seeks to win the 3rd ODI in order to avoid a whitewash ODI series.
