Just a day ago, Australia’s best batsman, Steve Smith opened up on the prospect of opening in the T20s. In an interview with Australian Associated Press, the veteran cricketer revealed that opening the batting is his favourite position in the shortest format.

It seems that he is starting to enjoy opening the innings in T20s. Recently, he scored a century against Adelaide Strikers in the 45th match of the Big Bash League at International Sports Stadium, Coffs Harbour.

The experienced campaigner scored 101 off just 56 balls where he constructed his innings with the help of 5 boundaries and 7 sixes to his name. Moreover, the right-handed batsman has maintained an exceptional strike rate of 180.36.

He was batting so well and was expected to add more value to the team’s total. However, he was run out by the combined efforts of Matthew Short and Alex Carey. Steve Smith ended up on the winning side as his team Sydney Sixers won the game by 59 runs.
