    Profile

    Generously touted as Shane Warne's doppelgänger for his blonde locks and his leg-spin, Steven Smith's enterprising batting and lively fielding may see him develop into a triple threat in the years to come. He first created a buzz in Australia’s domestic circuit during the 2008 KFC Twenty20 tournament, helping New South Wales defend 122 against Queensland with figures of 4 for 15. He   became an integral cog in the Blues set-up, helping them win the 2008-09 Big Bash and the inaugural Champions League T20. After 13 matches in the 2009-10 season, he was averaging over 50 with the bat but his similar average with the ball was a concern. Taken under the wing by none other than Warne himself, his figures began to gradually improve and he finished the season with a career-best 7 for 64, receiving a call-up to the national Twenty20 and ODI squads soon after. He has shown the ability to deliver under pressure in the shorter formats and finished the 2010 T20 World Cup as the second highest wicket taker with a tally of 11. Although his bowling performance since his debut at Lord's hasn't exactly set the stage alight, his batting has exceeded expectations and given Australia another option at No. 6. He may not ever compete on the wavelength of Warne but with time on his side and no dearth of confidence, he can only improve hereafter and create a niche of his own.
