Yep, he was purely a spin bowling/batting all-rounder at the start of his Test career. His obsessive traits probably mean he spent too much time on both forms of play, and this probably resulted in him not being elite in either forms.Haven't been a hard core cricket follower for nearly a decade now but correct me if I'm wrong, when Smith came onto the scene wasn't he a leg spinner who could bat abit? Amazing talent.
Not sure if it was entirely his choice, but a few years on, he decided to focus on mainly batting, and the results now are for all to see.
