Steven ‘Stellar’ Smith’s batting and captaincy

Steven Smith walked out to bat in a rather tricky situation at the Gabba. With 3 quick wickets, England were right on top. It was then the Aussie skipper Smith showed what he’s made of.A knock laced with solid technique, his trademark shots and more importantly his presence of mind and the match situation. He had to guide the team out of a messy situation and also guide Shaun Marsh to hang in with him and put pressure on the English bowlers.
This innings of 141 not out from 326 balls was filled with 14 boundaries, most of which were sublime, exquisite shots. In terms of the pressure and the match situation when he came in to bat, the value of his century only increases.
