Steve Smith is one of the finest batters of modern-day cricket alongside Virat Kohli, Kane Williamson, Joe Root, and Babar Azam. The right-hander made his debut against Pakistan in July 2010. Although the 34-year-old is a bit unorthodox with his stroke play Smith has the adaptability to change his technique depending on the formats and he does it so effortlessly.
Smith started his career as a leg spinner in the 2008 under-19 world cup in Malaysia but his progression as a batsman was more worthy. His performance as skipper of the national side is impressive. He was part of two ICC World Cup wins (the 2015 limited overs world cup in Australia & New Zealand and the 2021 T20 World Cup in Abu Dhabi). He was also a part of the 2021-23 World Test championship team that won the WTC final this year. In this piece, we take a look at the centuries scored by the right-hander in all formats.
