Meanwhile, Steven Smith who was unsure until Tuesday due to sore back is back and fit for the final game. The 604 runs that Smith has scored is the fourth-most by a captain in an Ashes series, with the 810 that Bradman had scored in 1936-37 being the most. Another century in Sydney will see him join Bradman, Herbert Sutcliffe and Wally Hammond as the only men to score four hundreds in the same Ashes series.
