Steve Smith talks about threat to Ashton Agar and Pakistani food [Video]
Australian cricketer Steve Smith isn’t worried about the security situation as he feels ‘incredibly safe’ in Pakistan. The Aussies are in Pakistan for the first time in more than two decades.
Just days ahead of the start of the first test match between Pakistan and Australia, Ashton Agar received a death threat via social media. However, the threat was dismissed following the joint investigation of boards and security agencies of the two countries.
Cricket Australia stated that there are extensive security in place to deal with such social media activities and the threat was “not considered a risk”. Steve Smith said that the players are fully aware of what can happen on social media platforms.
“We`ve got a lot of people working here with us, we trust our security and we`re feeling incredibly safe in Pakistan.”
The former Aussie skipper is excited to be playing in Pakistan. He added: “We know how passionate Pakistanis are about cricket.”
Smith was also all praise for the Pakistan bowling attack and the hospitality in the country. “The food was sensational,” he stated.

Regarding the concussion he sustained against Sri Lanka in Sydney last month, the right handed batter said that he is feeling much better now. “It`s the first session back for me facing fast bowling. I`m recovering from the concussion and I`ve faced some side-arm and spinners.”
