Australian all-rounder, Steven Smith completed 1,000 runs in Test cricket on Friday, during Day One of the fifth and final Ashes 2013-14 Test against England.

 

Playing in the New Year’s Ashes Test at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG), Smith came into bat with Australia in a spot of bother, as they had lost three quick wickets on the first day. They were later five down, but then he and Brad Haddin embarked on another rescue mission for Australia, and pushed the score to 193 for five (in 51 overs) from 97 for five.

 

He reached the landmark playing in just his 17th Test match for Australia. Smith debuted against Pakistan at Lord’s on July 13, 2010. Although he earned his first Baggy Green almost three and a half years back, yet he was not part of the regular scheme of things until 2013.

 

Smith played 11 of his 17 Tests in 2013. It was also during this period that he scored both of his Test centuries, with his highest score being a fighting 138 not out against England in the fifth and final Test of the first Ashes series of 2013 in England, which Australia lost 0-3.

 

Smith’s resurgence as a Test cricketer started early 2013 against India at Mohali. In the very first comeback match, he scored a spirited 92 in the first innings against India.

 

In the 17 matches he has played so far, Smith has notched up 1,010 runs from 32 innings, with two hundreds and five fifties to his credit at an average of 36.07.
