Steve Smith rejoins Sydney Sixers to tune up for T20 World Cup

Former Australian skipper Steve Smith is one of the most desired batsman of the International cricket. Across the three formats of the game, the run machine has shown his prowess time and again, which is evident from his sublime performances.

Now, the 30-year old player is set to get back in action in the highly competitive Big Bash League (BBL) as he is meant to rejoin Sydney Sixers for the latter rounds of the tournament. Smith had to miss the complete previous season of the 20-over competition because of serving his suspension, which was handled to him for his role in the ball-tampering saga against South Africa.

However, the iconic batsman made a smashing entry into the competitive cricket and now he aims to build on that and gear up for the next year’s T20 World Cup. The stint with Sydney would be ideal to have Smith get back in groove for the shortest format of the game.

Playing over 180 T20s, the New South Wales born scored 3790 runs at a sturdy average of 31.06. Moreover, a strike-rate of 125.08 further highlights the quality he is set to add to Sydney’s unit as the batting genius sits ready and excited for the forthcoming challenge.
