Bio

Having failed to come to grips with international game as a baby-faced 20-year-old, Steven Smith has undergone a dramatic career transformation in recent years.

As a mature 25-year-old with 20 Tests and four centuries to his name, Smith admitted in 2014 that he wasn’t ready for Test cricket when he was thrown in the deep end in 2010.

Having been sent back to domestic cricket to regain his form and confidence, Smith returned to the Test side with a bang in 2013, scoring 92 against India in Mohali to earn a late call-up to Australia’s Ashes touring party.

Smith started strongly against England with a score of 53 in tough conditions at Trent Bridge, before throwing his wicket away at Old Trafford just 11 runs short of his maiden century.

But the unorthodox right-hander didn’t have to wait long to reach three figures, posting an unbeaten 138 in the fifth Test at The Oval.

He followed it up with brilliant centuries in Perth and Sydney in Australia’s Ashes whitewash, before recording another hundred against South Africa in Centurion.

His leg-spin has also been a handy ace up the sleeve of skipper Michael Clarke.

Smith was named Australia's vice-captain on December 15, 2014 and Australia's 45th Test captain, to replace the injured Michael Clarke during the final three Tests of the series against India.
