Steve Smith

Steve Smith made his first appearance in international cricket as a leg spinner in 2010, a T20 match against Pakistan at the MCG (Melbourne Cricket Ground). At the time, he played as a lower order handy batsman; when he was named captain of Australia five years later, he was the number one Test batsman in the world, and little more than a casual bowler.

Steve Smith amassed 1,474 runs in 13 matches (23 innings) with a formidable 73.7 average in 2015, and 1,305 runs in 11 matches (20 innings) in 2017 at a creditable average of 50.71. He made his Test debut against Pakistan in 2010 at the iconic Lord’s Ground, where he took 3 for 51 in the 2nd innings of the game. Smith came out to bat in 3rd over, it did not seem that Smith was playing for a grand final, as he looked extremely confident when bowling. Despite his unorthodox batted techniques, he found ways of scoring runs regardless of the situation. Smith has worked his craft in the batting department for years, and has carried the Australian batsmanship line-up in a number of instances.

Smith has also emerged as the pivotal figure of the Australian ODI team, being the leading run-scorer for his nation during the successful campaign at the 2015 World Cup. He became the captain of all three formats prior to the reversal of his career. Steve Smith has played a lot of crucial innings for Australia, and one of those knocks was in their semi-final game of the 2015 Cricket World Cup. His innings, which was highlighted by ICC, helped the Australian cricket team reach the target of 328 runs.

Indian fans will not like to recall that knock, but Steve Smith made such an immense mauling in Pune in 2019, it has gone down as one of the finest by Steve Smith in Test cricket. This knock was an innings which proved that Steve Smith is a player for all tracks because in a turning track like Pune, playing such a fabulous knock showed all of his class and ability against Indias big spin attack. It was the Boxing Day match of 2014 where Steve Smith played arguably the best Steve Smith innings when he bashed the Indian attack everywhere scoring 192 runs.

Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane were involved in an amazing partnership, MS Dhoni saved the 2014 Boxing Day match, then announced his retirement from Test cricket. Smith responded to this question by choosing his ODI century against India in the semi-final of 2015 World Cup at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) as the favorite. Smith finally picked his magic 142-ball knock against England at Edgbaston during the 2019 Ashes as his most memorable performance.

Scoring 774 runs in Ashes series, taking Australia into the semifinals of 2019 ICC ODI World Cup are some of the milestones that Australian cricketer Steve Smith has achieved since getting a second lease on life. Steven Smith is the only player to have won ICC Test Player of the Year twice, in 2015 and 2017. His consistently good bat-to-ball performances in international cricket have helped him win the prestigious Allan Border Medal on three occasions (2015, 2018 and 2021).
