Watch: Steve Smith brings up his 30th Test hundred, breaks multiple records

Steve Smith achieved the feat during the second day of the third Test against South Africa at the Sydney Cricket Ground in Sydney.

Australia’s Steve Smith stormed another ton on Thursday and moved past legendary Sir Donald Bradman’s record for the most Test hundreds in Australia’s history. Smith brought up his 30th century in the longest format of the game.

With a stellar pull shot off South Africa’s Anrich Nortje to throw the ball out of the boundary, Smith reached the milestone in 190 balls.

He achieved the feat during the second day of the third Test against South Africa at the Sydney Cricket Ground in Sydney.
During his 104-run performance, Usman Khawaja and Smith added more than 200 runs to the Australian total during their partnership, pushing the total well over 350 runs. Khawaja also achieved his thirteenth hundred in Test matches.
33-year-old Smith is now ranked fourth among all Australians and fourteenth overall for most hundreds in Test cricket.

Smith also went past Australia’s Michael Clarke to become the 4th highest Test run-getter with 8,647 runs. He is now behind former captain Ricky Ponting, Allan Border and Steve Waugh in the list.
