Rajasthan Royals (RR) skipper Steve Smith is still waiting to unite with the entire squad for the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). In the tournament he scored 114 runs and took seven wickets in four matches. [147], Next followed a three Test home series against New Zealand. I hope in time I can earn back respect and forgiveness. Smith was called into the Ashes XI squad for the first Test of 2013–14 Ashes series in Brisbane. [186] On 16 December 2017, Smith scored 239 on the final Ashes match at WACA Ground. [16], By the end of the 2009–10 domestic season, Smith had a first-class batting average of over 50 after 13 first-class matches. He was suspended and sent home from the tour. [101] In his first match against Zimbabwe, he was run out by Sikandar Raza. He replicated his ton in the first Test in Pune where he produced his first century in the Indian Subcontinent, accompanied by the support of his bowlers to win their first Test match in India since 2004 and breaking India's 19 match undefeated streak, stretching back from 2012. [29][30] Smith was given the captaincy of the Royals in the latter half of the 2015 season and led the team to significant victories, thus ensuring a berth for his team in the play-off part of the tournament. Australia won the first Test by 118 runs with Smith making scores of 56 and 38 runs. [17] In the final match of the season he took 7 for 64 in the second innings against South Australia.[18]. Smith went on to score only 2 against India, as Australia were knocked out of the tournament. [206] Rabada successfully appealed the ban; a decision that annoyed Smith. [85] Smith became only the sixth Australian to reach his maiden Test 100 with a six. [207], Australia lost by 322 runs in the third Test, with Smith barely contributing to the score. [161], Smith then led the Australian Cricket Team on their tour of Sri Lanka. [153][154][155] In the same year, he also received the Allan Border Medal, Australian Test Player of the Year and Australian One Day International Player of the Year award. He also took nine catches throughout the tournament. RR vs RCB IPL 2020 LIVE: Rajasthan Royal’s coach Andrew McDonald’s shares thoughts on teams preparations The Australian coach express is joy over the availability of Smith for the first match. [15] He was part of the New South Wales team that won the 2009 Twenty20 Champions League. Transitioning into the Test series saw Australia's continued failure against reverse swing and spin in the subcontinent. Advertisement Steve Smith is the highest earner in the RR side with a salary of 12.5 crores, but he was far from his best in IPL 2020. [203] South Africa won the second Test by 6 wickets, with Smith's contributions being only 25 and 11 runs. In the first Test match at Trent Bridge he made a half century in his first innings but fell cheaply in the second innings getting out lbw to Graeme Swann. The below IPL stats shows the runs and records of Steve Smith from IPL 2012 season. [177], Smith was once again featured in ICC's 2016 Cricket Awards as a 12th man for the ICC Test team of the year. [86] At the end of the series, the urn was retained by England after winning the series 3–0. He was named by Wisden as one of their Cricketers of the Year for 2015. During the final Ashes match in Sydney, Smith reached the milestone of 6,000 Test runs in 111 innings, becoming the equal second-fastest player and also the youngest Australian, ever to do so. Smith was first bought by Royal Challengers Bangalore for the 2010 Indian Premier League as a replacement for Jesse Ryder. In the previous two Sheffield seasons his form had been good without being great (averaging 37), but he was chosen for the 17-man squad, primarily as a backup batsman, rather than an allrounder as he had been in the Test team previously. [141] Australia later defeated England by an innings and 46 runs. But Smith made a comeback in the 12th season of the IPL to satisfy his hunger for runs. Smith took 11 wickets in seven matches at an average of 14.81 to finish as the equal-second-highest wicket-taker of the tournament. Smith is consistently rated as one of the top-ranked Test batsmen in the world, according to the ICC Player Rankings. [21] In 2011–12, the Australian T20 competition became the city-based Big Bash League featuring eight teams. The squad later travelled to the UAE to face Pakistan in a T20 Match, three ODIs and two Tests. [272][273], Much of the credit for Smith's success can also be attributed to batting coach Trent Woodhill, who coached Smith as a junior and noted his abundant talent. They lost the first 3 matches, largely attesting to their young bowling attack's inability to contain a strong South African batting line-up. [269] Playing in a club match in January 2010, right-handed Smith took guard left-handed and hit a six.
