Birmingham Smith went about decimating the England bowlers and batting records on Day 4 of the first Ashes Test at Edgbaston on Sunday.
The former Australia captain, playing his first Test after serving a one-year ban for his involvement in the 2018 Newlands ball-tampering scandal, scored his second century of the match on Sunday and helped his team to a commanding position.
The century was Smith’s 25th in Test cricket as he surpassed India captain Virat Kohli to become the second-fastest to get there. Kohli took 127 innings to reach 25 centuries while Smith has taken 119 innings. Sir Donald Bradman tops the chart by a big margin, having reached 25 centuries in just 68 innings.
