Despite starting his career as a leg spinner, over the years, Steve Smith has evolved himself into one of the most dominant batsmen in the game, mostly asserting his supremacy in the longest format. The 31-year-old has drawn a lot of attention towards him because of his unusual batting style, which has made him a nightmare for several bowlers around the world.
Steve Smith is currently the number one ranked Test batsman in the world and has been hailed by many as the ‘best since Sir Don Bradman’ due to his distinctively high average in Tests.
