teve Smith loves to move. Watching him take stance for a delivery is as fascinating an experience as watching him bat. He pats his thigh-pads, touches his helmet, fixes his gloves, looks around the field, and then, at long last, brings his bat to the ground as a signal to the bowler, who could’ve finished a hot dog by now, to start his run-up. As the bowler runs in, he does his final preparatory move — the half squat pulse. He does this routine six balls an over, every over, all day. For someone who scores at a brisk rate in all formats, one could wager he spends a lot more calories preparing to bat than he does while batting.
