Wanted to try and make Pune a bit of a fortress: Smith
Rising Pune Supergiant beat Gujarat Lions in a nervy chase to fortify their position in the top four BCCI
It was a day before the Indian Premier League auction that MS Dhoni was replaced by Steve Smith as the captain of the Rising Pune Supergiant. Owner Sanjeev Goenka was full of praise of Smith’s involvement at the time of the auction and getting to know his side, highlighting his qualities of a leader. At the same time, there was also apprehension amongst masses as to how the working relationship between Dhoni and Smith would affect the side in the tenth edition.
