Steve Smith is an Australian international cricketer and former captain of the Australian national cricket team. Steve is known as one of the top batsmen in the world as a result of his numerous outstanding performances over the years.

Since his childhood, Steve has been a cricket fanatic. He was an ardent cricket player throughout his school years. His academics suffered as a result. He had, however, brought honour to his high school by guiding his team to numerous victories in various inter-school events. In the end, he dropped out of high school.

At the 2008 ‘Under-19 World Cup,’ Steve Smith was a member of the ‘Australian Under-19′ team, which competed in Malaysia. He was mostly a leg spinner and a batsman in the bottom order. He scored 114 runs and grabbed 7 wickets in the four matches he played in the competition, as per the famous people reports.

In the same year, Steve Smith made his Australian first-class debut for New South Wales against Western Australia at the ‘Sydney Cricket Ground.’ Steve was also a member of the New South Wales team that won the T20 Champions League in 2009.

The tournament’s inaugural runner-up was Australia. As an all-rounder, he regularly delivered. Following the ‘Ashes,’ Steve took a temporary break from Test cricket but returned in 2013 to reclaim his place as a major component of the Australian side.

However, Australian cricketer Cameron Bancroft was caught on camera tampering with the ball while playing a Test match against South Africa on March 24, 2018. In a news conference afterward, he admitted that the team’s leadership, including Captain Steve Smith, were aware of what he had done.

Steve was relieved of his leadership, and Tim Paine was appointed in his place. After an examination by ‘Cricket Australia,’ Steve was barred from playing international and domestic cricket for a year.

He served his penalty and came back to play the IPL. Steve was in a bad form and was not performing well and received a lot of criticism from the fans.
