Flamboyant Australian batsman Steve Smith is churning out heaps of runs consistently in the ongoing Ashes series. With 589 runs across 4 innings in the series, Smith’s dominance over England knows no bounds as he brought up the third Ashes double ton of his career.
With unprecedented levels of success against his favorite opposition, Smith now has 8 successive fifty-plus scores against England. This is the record for the second-most number of consecutive 50-plus scores against a single team.
The distinguished record for this unique category belongs to Pakistan legend Inzamam-ul-Haq, who had nine 50-plus scores on the trot against England from 2001 to 2006. However, with Smith in prime form, he might be able to overtake Inzamam’s astonishing record.
