Born on 2nd June 1989, Steve Smith is a professional cricketer from Australia. He is a right-handed batter and a right-handed part-time leg-spinner by trade. Interestingly, he was a leg-spinner who could bat a bit when he began his career. Hence, the story of Smith’s career redemption is the one for ages.
Smith made his domestic debut in the 2007-08 season for New South Wales. As a youngster, he had raw talent and many backed him to replace then recently-retired Shane Warne in the Australian team. Smith received his maiden national call-up in a T20I game against Pakistan in February 2010. A few days later, he made his ODI debut against West Indies during the same month. Meanwhile, he received his maiden Test cap against Pakistan in July 2010.
However, a lot of questions were raised over his utility in the Australian side and subsequently he was dropped from the national side. The 2013 season witnessed the return of Steve Smith 2.0 as a batter who took the world by storm with his unorthodox batting technique. Ever since, he has grown into arguably the best Test batter of modern times.
The right-handed batter made his debut in the Indian Premier League in the 2012 edition for Pune Warriors India. Since then, he has played for a number of franchises, including Rajasthan Royal, Rising Pune Supergiants, and Delhi Capitals.
