Whenever the world’s best batters are discussed, veteran Australian batter Steve Smith is always in the picture. Being 34 years old, Smith has established himself as one of the best batters of this generation and continues to dominate even the best of bowling lineups.
Ahead of his 100th Test, the 34-year-old came forward to reflect on his journey and revealed some of the most memorable moments from his career. Smith revealed that he was feeling proud for being able to represent Australia for such a long time.
“Proud, I suppose is a word. What I have been able to achieve across those hundreds has been a great journey. I have enjoyed every moment of it and to walk out in a couple of days at Headingley for my 100, I am extremely excited,” Steve Smith said in a video posted by Cricket Australia.
“Been lucky to play with some amazing players in the dressing room, and I think our team right now is right up there, we have got a tremendous bunch of players. Batters that go all the way down, some great fast bowlers, and a spinner (Nathan Lyon) that we are likely to miss in the coming weeks,” he added.
‘The only time I have not liked the game when I had the operation’ – Smith on the darkest moment of his career
“The only time I have not liked the game is when I had my elbow brace on when I had the operation and for some reason, I did not enjoy the game, and didn’t wanna play. The moment I had my elbow brace off, I suddenly had the love back,” Smith said.
