Steven Smith has got his highest Test score during Day Two of the third Test between India and Australia in Melbourne. He smashed a six down the ground to move to 168. Smith is playing his second Test as captain and has scored tons in both.

Smith has been in tremendous form. This is his seventh Test ton, third in this series and fifth in 2014. That shows a rich vein of form and that he is one of the best batsmen going around currently. Australia have also gone past 500.

Earlier, Australia had won the toss and had elected to bat first. Joe Burns is debuting for them. On the other hand, India brought in KL Rahul, who gets his Test cap. Mohammed Shami has replaced Varun Aaron. Australia are leading the series 2-0 after winning the first two Tests in Adelaide and Brisbane.
