Australia's <a href="https://www.india.com/topic/Steve-Smith">Steve Smith</a> notched up his 42nd first-class ton on Tuesday during a Sheffield Shield game between New South Wales and Western Australia. Smith scored 103 off 295 balls and it was also his slowest century in red-ball cricket. But what made news was his bizarre dismissal and his reaction after being given out. Smith was furious after the umpire gave him out. <p></p> <p></p>Smith was trying to upper-cut a bouncer from <a href="https://www.india.com/topic/Marcus-Stoinis">Marcus Stoinis</a> with wicketkeeper Josh Inglis standing up (near the stumps). After Smith played the shot, the wicketkeeper went up in appeal for a caught behind and the umpire raised his finger. Smith was shocked as he stood his ground for sometime before making the long walk back to the pavilion. <p></p><blockquote class="twitter-tweet"> <p></p><p dir="ltr" lang="en">NEVER tell Steve Smith he has to stop batting! <p></p> <p></p>A bizarre dismissal brings the right-hander's 42nd first-class century to an end <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/SheffieldShield?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#SheffieldShield</a> <a href="https://t.co/KNEDpjtiFp">pic.twitter.com/KNEDpjtiFp</a></p> <p></p> cricket.com.au (@cricketcomau) <a href="https://twitter.com/cricketcomau/status/1194064514611728385?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">November 12, 2019</a></blockquote> <p></p> <p></p> <p></p>Earlier, Smith shared 82-runs stand for the second wicket with Daniel Solway to help New South Wales cross the 300-run mark. During the innings, Smith also added 141 runs for the third wicket with Moises Henriques. <p></p> <p></p>The Australian has had a phenomenal year so far, amassing 774 runs in just four Tests, including three centuries and as many half-centuries across seven innings. He is the top run-scorer in Tests in 2019 so far, despite having batted in just one series, the 2019 Ashes. <p></p> <p></p>He would soon be seen playing for Australia in whites when they host Pakistan.
