Steve Smith international career

Smith, the illustrious Australian cricketer, has left an indelible mark on the sport with his exceptional skills and remarkable achievements. Born on June 2, 1989, in Sydney, Smith's journey in cricket has been nothing short of extraordinary.

Smith's rise to prominence in international cricket was marked by his exceptional batting prowess. Known for his unorthodox yet highly effective batting style, he quickly earned a reputation as one of the most versatile and consistent batsmen in the world.

His ability to adapt to different formats of the game, from Test cricket to One Day Internationals and T20s, showcases his cricketing acumen.

One of the defining moments of Smith's career was when he assumed the role of Australia's Test captain in 2014. Under his leadership, the Australian team reached new heights, dominating the cricketing world.

However, his captaincy faced a significant setback during the infamous ball-tampering incident in 2018, which led to his suspension.

The first of Steve Smith centuries in ODI cricket came back in October 2014 against Pakistan at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium. After opting to bat first, the Aussies scored 255 for the loss of eight wickets on a tricky surface to bat on.

Smith, however, looked at ease, as he scored 101 runs off 118 balls with the help of six fours and two sixes. Australia bowled Pakistan out for 162 and won the match by 93 runs.

The first of Steve Smith centuries in ODIs at home came in November 2014 against South Africa at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. After the Aussies were asked to chase down 268, Smith batted with grace and scored 104 runs off 112 balls with seven fours.

Smith won the Player of the Match award after the Aussies won the match by three wickets to lead the five-match ODI series 3-1.

Back in December 2016, Smith notched his highest score in ODIs. After the Aussies opted to bat first against the Black Caps at the SCG, they scored 324 for the loss of eight wickets. But the hosts would not have got to the score had Smith not played a blinder.

Smith came to bat in the very first over after Matt Hery got the crucial wicket of Aaron Finch. Smith did not look back from there on and scored 164 runs off 157 balls with 14 fours and four sixes. He also put on a partnership of 127 runs with Travis Head, who also scored a half-century.

Martin Guptill scored 114 runs, but his knock went in vain as Australia won the match by 68 runs to take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series. As far as Smith is concerned, he is regarded as one of the greatest batters Test Cricket has ever witnessed.

But he has also shown his class time and again in the limited-overs formats. At the age of 34, Smith has plenty of cricket left in him without a shred of a doubt.
