Cricket fans in the US are in for a treat! The scorching batting talent, Steve Smith, has signed with the Washington Freedom for the upcoming Major League Cricket (MLC) season. This marks the 34-year-old Australian maestro’s debut in the US-based franchise competition.

Smith, renowned for amassing nearly 10,000 runs in Test cricket, brings a wealth of experience and exceptional batting prowess to the Freedom squad.

With Smith’s batting brilliance and Ponting’s strategic leadership, the Washington Freedom are poised to make a strong run for the MLC championship. Get ready for a summer filled with exhilarating cricket action!
