New South Wales’ Daniel Smith wants his bat to do the talking – Cricket News Update has said that he will not be tempted to comment against critics despite his magnificent batting display against Victoria on Sunday, October 30, 2011.
Smith scored an unbeaten 185 runs off just 123 deliveries with the help of 12 sixes and 13 fours, breaking the record of Australia’s flamboyant in a domestic one-dayer for the most number of sixes in an innings.

Although was not given a state contract this season, he said that the reason for him playing cricket is for its love.
The flamboyant batsman stated, “Obviously I was disappointed but at the end of the day I don't play cricket for money, you play because you love it. I've been with the side for eight or so years and to finally put in a performance I am proud of, it's a big
thing and I'm over the moon.”
Commenting on his match winning knock, Smith said, “It's a knock on the head but you go back to doing what you love and hope to get an opportunity along the line which I was lucky enough to get. I'm just taking any opportunity that comes my way and going
with it. I'm just loving being around these guys and hopefully making a contribution.”
