Australian batsman Steve Smith scored a great century in the Test series at home. Bradman hit a century. Touched Matthew Hayden. At the same time, Smith got into a fancy celebration by scoring a century against the Proteas. But why this exceptional celebration of scoring a century is a question in the minds of cricket lovers. Smith revealed the secret himself.
Australia did not care about the opponent when they came to the field against South Africa. Smith played an unbeaten innings of 104 runs at the Sydney Cricket Ground. He got the 30th century of his Test career. Australian legend Don Bradman had 29 centuries in Test career. Smith topped this record. He also became the owner of the second fastest century in the cricket world. Now only Ricky Ponting and Steve Waugh are ahead of him.
After scoring this great century, his new celebration came into focus. The video of his celebration spread in the net world. There, after scoring a century, he dropped the bat to the ground after being greeted by teammates and spectators. And then he pretended to run a saw. Which leaves a response in the net world. But at the end of the day, he revealed the secret behind this celebration.
Faced with reporters, Smith said that behind this celebration is his teammate Marnus Labuchen. Labuschenne was dismissed on a delivery by the South African bowler Nakhir. After coming to the dressing room, Labuschagne said, “It seemed like the ball jumped up and went out like a saw.” And after these words, laughter started in the dressing room. But Labuschenne got angry. And after that, Smith said if he can score a century, he will celebrate like running a saw.
Meanwhile, Smith also talked about retirement on the record-setting day. In response to the question of whether he will play the next series at home or not, he said, “Sometimes people ask about retirement, but I don’t know about this. I want to continue one series at a time and see how I am playing. But I am enjoying cricket, I am still improving every day. I’m doing it. But I don’t know how long that will be. Time will tell. Let’s see.”
Note that Australia will visit India in February after completing the series against South Africa. But they have started their preparation now. Playing like India by making a pitch, so that Australia can take advantage on Indian soil. Smith’s record against India is good. This Auji star will surely want to spread light with the bat there too.
