Australia‘s campaign in the 2017-18 Ashes started with a 10-wicket win at The Gabba. Much of the credit goes to Steve Smith for his exquisite knock of an unbeaten 141. Following his heroics, many Australian greats such as Ricky Ponting and Allan Border said that Smith is well on his course to become one of the greatest Australian cricketers.

“He’s almost going to rewrite the history books the way he is playing, 21 centuries in 57 Tests and he didn’t do so well in his first 10 or so.

He concentrates well, overcomes plans well and just when you think you’ve got him in a weak moment he’ll find a way out of it,” said Waugh to reporters in Sydney.
