Bio

Steve Smith is Australia’s 45th Test captain, and has transformed himself over his international career from leg-spinner to world-class batsman.

Smith made his first-class debut in 2008, playing for New South Wales against Western Australia. Two years later he was given his Baggy Green in a Test match against Pakistan, where he batted at no.8 and took three wickets as the front-line spinner in a Test victory for the Aussies.

Smith was dropped from the Australian team due to inconsistent form during the 2010-11 Ashes and used this time to regain form and confidence in the domestic competition. In 2013 he was recalled to the Test team, scoring 92 against India in Mohali which earned him a late call-up to Australia’s Ashes touring party. Despite a series loss, Smith showed signs of improvements with the bat, putting together consistent performances along with his maiden Test century, an unbeaten 138 at The Oval.

A few months later Smith posted centuries in Perth and Sydney as part of Australia’s Ashes 5-0 whitewash, followed by another hundred against South Africa in Centurion.

Smith captained Australia’s Test side for the first time against India in the 2014-15 summer, filling in for an injured Michael Clarke. It was a landmark series for Smith, who posted tons in all four Tests against India.

Smith reached the no.1 ICC Test batsmen ranking for the first time in June 2015 and was officially named Australia’s full-time Test skipper at the end of the 2015 Ashes in England. He was also awarded the Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy for ICC Cricketer of the Year 2015.
