Steve Smith has notched his 31st hundred in Test cricket and he reached the milestone in Australia’s World Test Championship (WTC) final against India at the Kennington Oval in London. At Stumps on Day 1 of the Test, Smith was unbeaten on 95 runs off 227 balls with the help of 14 fours.

Smith had put on an unbeaten partnership of 251 runs with Travis Head after the Aussies lost the wickets of Usman Khawaja, David Warner and Marnus Labuschagne in pretty quick succession.

While Head got to his hundred quite comfortably, Smith wasn’t hurried to get to the three-figure score, although he finished the day off for Australia with a glorious four through the covers off Mohammed Shami.

Steve Smith has eclipsed Virat Kohli & Ricky Ponting

Smith, in the meantime, went past Virat Kohli and Ricky Ponting in the list of most hundreds in Test matches between India and Australia. Smith currently has nine hundreds from 36 innings in 19 Tests. Sachin Tendulkar holds the record, having racked up 11 hundreds and 16 fifties from 39 Tests with a top score of 241 not out.
