New Delhi. Steve Smith, the experienced batsman of the Australian cricket team, has set a record which is almost impossible for Virat Kohli to break. Smith is currently playing in Australia’s T20 Big Bash League. Smith, who played for the Sydney Sixers, hit a century off 56 balls, raining fours and sixes against the Adelaide Strikers. On the basis of Smith’s blistering century, the Sydney Sixers made a mountainous score.
Adelaide Strikers captain Travis Head won the toss and invited the Sydney Sixers to bat first. Josh Philippe and Steve Smith landed in the opening for Sydney Sixers. Josh Philip could not do anything special and returned to the pavilion after scoring 1 run on the third ball of the first over of the match. After this Smith got the support of Kurtis Patterson. Both the batsmen shared a 149-run partnership for the second wicket to take the team towards a big score.
Steve Smith Scored a Century in 56 balls
Patterson was dismissed after scoring 43 runs in 33 balls. After this, Steve Smith played an inning of 101 runs in 56 balls with the help of 5 fours and 7 sixes. This is the first century of Smith’s T20 career. Apart from this, this is also the first century in BBL for any batsman from Sydney Sixers. Virat Kohli cannot break this record of Smith because the Indian Cricket Board does not allow its players to play in foreign leagues. In such a situation, it is almost impossible for Kohli to break this record.
Sydney Sixers Scored 203 Runs for 5 Wickets
Thanks to Steve Smith’s blistering century, Sydney Sixers scored 203 runs for 5 wickets. In such a situation, there is a target of 204 runs in front of the head-led team.

He also surpassed Bradman’s record of 29 centuries in Test matches.
