Steven Smith Misses To Break A Top Record In Test Cricket History
Since his return to international cricket after completing the one-year suspension period, Australian cricketer Steven Smith has slowly but smoothly developed his batting and built up to his familiar world-class level. However, recently during the home Test series, when the Australian top-orders were in outstanding batting form, Steven Smith’s flop shows destroyed a golden chance for him to create a new world record. He was very close to create a new world record.
Australian cricketer Steven Smith is in great batting form at present. While he was known a dominant batsman before his one-year suspension by Cricket Australia (CA) due to his involvement in the ball-tampering incident during Cape Town Test in March 2018, he has maintained the same attitude in his batting since his return to the international cricket after completing that suspension period.
In the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, Steven Smith scored 379 runs in 10 innings with an average of 37.90. However, Smith stunned the world cricket with his unstoppable performances in the Ashes 2019. While Australia finally returned the home with the away Ashes trophy for the first time since 2001 after ending the Ashes 2019 with the 2-2 margins, Smith was the major reason for Australia’s success in that tournament. The right-handed batsman scored a whopping 774 runs in seven innings with an average of 110.57. Smith hit three centuries and three half-centuries in that tournament. Due to his tremendous batting form in Ashes 2019, Smith has regained the no.1 position in Test batting rankings.
Steven Smith continued his form in the recently concluded home T20I series against Sri Lanka and Pakistan.
Most recently, Australia have played the two-match home Test series against Pakistan where Australia thrashed the visitors by the 2-0 margin. During the last Test in that series at Adelaide, Smith completed his 7,000 Test runs and became the fastest batsman to achieve this feat (126 Test innings). However, he scored only four and 36 runs in that series.
Steven Smith was just short to break Marcus Trescothick’s record
After playing at least one 50+ knock in 21 consecutive Test series, Steven Smith has finally failed to play a 50+ knock in an entire Test series. Smith just finished the behind of the world record of former English opener Marcus Trescothick, who played at least one 50+ knock in 23 consecutive Test series. The Australian star just failed short to achieve a remarkable record which would be very tougher to beat.
