Steve Smith is unstoppable when playing against India. In continuing the trend of scoring big against his favourite opponent, the Australian captain registered his 20th Test match hundred, his seventh against India. He made 111 in the ongoing Test match in Dharamsala as wickets fell around him on what looks to be a decent track for batting.Also Read - Shane Warne Not Amused With Steve Smith's Return to Leadership Role

Smith’s wicket was eventually taken by Ravichandran Ashwin. In the process, Smith has written himself in record books once again. For anyone who has scored over 2,000 runs in Test match cricket, Smith has the second best batting average which is 61.57 at the moment. The numero uno spot is of course reserved for Don Bradman who averaged 99.94. Also Read - Ashes 2021: Ian Chappell Bashes Cricket Australia On Appointing Steve Smith As Vice Captain

Smith also equaled Mark Waugh in the most number of hundreds tally for Aussie batsmen. What is remarkable is that while the retired Waugh played 128 Test matches in his career, Smith is only in his 54th game. He also went past Mark Taylor and Mike Hussey. Both of them scored 19 Test tons each. Also Check- India vs Australia 4th Test Live Score

This is the third ton in the ongoing series for Smith and it remains to be seen how crucial it turns out to be. At the time of filing this story, Australia are 249 for 7 in 75 overs on Day 1 in Dharamsala. It goes without saying that sans Smith, they would have struggled to compete in both this Test, as well as the series.
