IIE Digital Desk: Steve Smith will become the 81st cricketer to play 100 Test matches for Australia when he takes the field against Sri Lanka in Galle on Friday. The 33-year-old is one of the most successful batsmen in Test history, with 7,688 runs at an average of 63.00. He has scored 27 centuries and 28 half-centuries in Test cricket, and is only the second Australian batsman after Allan Border to score 7,000 runs in his first 100 Tests.

Smith made his Test debut in 2013, and has since established himself as one of the best batsmen in the world. He is a master of all formats of the game, but his Test record is particularly impressive. He has scored centuries in all countries he has played in, and is particularly dominant in Australia, where he has scored 2,760 runs at an average of 70.43.

Smith is also a brilliant captain, and led Australia to a 2-1 Ashes victory in England in 2019. He is a tough competitor and a natural leader, and he has been a key factor in Australia's recent success in Test cricket.

Smith's 100th Test match is a major milestone in his career, and it is sure to be a special occasion. He is one of the greatest batsmen of all time, and he is sure to make his mark on the match.
