Smith’s remarkable record against England in the Ashes speaks for itself. He has scored an impressive 3044 runs against Australia’s long-standing rivals, averaging an incredible 59.68. This includes 11 centuries, showcasing his ability to consistently perform at a high level. In the 2019 Ashes series alone, Smith amassed a staggering 744 runs, earning him comparisons to the legendary Don Bradman. His outstanding performance during that series set new records, making him the highest-scoring player in a Test series in this century.
