‘Can’t wait to see what the next decade has in store for me’, Steve Smith ‘honored’ himself to be named Test Player of the Decade – Cricket

Days after being named ICC Men’s Cricketer of the Decade, Australian batsman ace Steve Smith wrote a heartwarming social media post. Speaking on the achievement, the former Aussie captain said he was honored to be awarded the honor and thanked his fans for their endless support.

Taking to his Twitter account on Thursday, Smith wrote: “Humbled to be named Test Player of the Decade. I want to thank everyone who has supported me throughout my career so far. I had a lot of fun, faced a lot of challenges, learned so much and can’t wait to see what the next decade has in store for me.

Here is the post:

Considered one of the greats of modern gaming, Smith has been phenomenal in that decade. During that time, he amassed 7,040 runs from 69 tests, with an average of 65.79. It also has 26 centuries, 28 half centuries and 3 Double Ashes tons.

Smith has been part of multiple series wins, but his performance in the 2019 Ashes could be called a career best. After returning from a 12-month ban, Smith scored 774 in 7 trying innings, missing 1 game with a concussion.
