AUS vs WI, 1st Test: The Test format is often considered one of the toughest formats in cricket. The One Day International format and the T20I formats are fine, but a batsman’s credentials are validated only when he does well in the longest format of time. For a long time now, Australia’s Steve Smith has been accomplishing heroic feats in the Australian whites and with the ‘Baggy Green’ on. Post the sandpaper gate fiasco, people speculated a lot about Smith’s form, but once he returned, he did things in his style.

As of now, Steve Smith has 29 Test tons to his name runs in 88 Test matches, and 155 innings. With his ton against the West Indies, the Australian stalwart equaled Sir Don Bradman’s record and he certainly was in no mood to stop. He went ahead and smashed a blistering double hundred and has now equaled a unique record accomplished by Kane Williamson and Indian legend Sunil Gavaskar.

Sunil Gavaskar and Kane Williamson, both have 4 international Test double-hundreds to their name and now Steven Smith too has joined them on this list.
