The audience was taken aback when Australian cricketer Steve Smith, who had already established his reputation in Test cricket, hammered a back-to-back century in the Big Bash League. The former captain of Australia is in the best form of his life playing Twenty20 cricket. Steven Smith looks unstoppable at this point.
Smith: Rediscovering form in T20 format
Smith, who plays for the Sydney Sixers, scored his second consecutive T20 century during what turned out to be a one-sided Sydney derby in the ongoing BBL on Friday. The contest was between the Sydney Thunder and the Sydney Sixers.
As a result, the cricket player for the Sydney Sixers became only the second hitter in the books of the league’s history to achieve two consecutive hundreds.
At the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG), Smith reached the triple-digit mark while playing against Sydney Thunder by walloping a massive six over the long-on line while facing Usman Qadir. This brought up the milestone.
After hitting a scorching knockoff of 66 balls for 125, which featured nine sixes and five fours, the New South Welshman maintained his unblemished record in the match. The cricket community poured a lot of praise on Smith when he hit a stunning six that became a topic of conversation.
On January 17, Smith hit his first BBL hundred against the Adelaide Strikers, where he collected 101 runs (56). Because of his reputation for not being a hard-hitter, major domestic leagues frequently pass over Smith, even though he is a maestro of the red ball.
Fans left in awe of his performance
A user of social media felt extremely fortunate to have been able to observe Steven Smith’s adventures in real-time. “I am really happy that I am able to watch live. Smith The comment stated, “You gorgeous dude, some of the shots he is playing are wild.” The statement was directed against the player.
One Twitter user said that it was “fantastic to watch.”
However, we can’t help but think that his new batting order has anything to do with his current success. It’s interesting that both of his hundreds came while he was opening the batting innings. Recent statements made by Smith indicate that he takes pleasure in leading off the innings. In addition, because Aaron Finch and David Warner have been struggling recently, this fiery new position may potentially earn Smith a berth on Australia’s national squad.
