Steve Smith matches this noteworthy accomplishment made by Don Bradman
Steve Smith quickly reached his 29th Test century during Thursday’s first Test match against the West Indies. He faced the three-figure mark on the 194th delivery of the game.
With his next target being the 30 of fellow Australian Matthew Hayden and Shivnarine Chanderpaul, whose son Tagenarine is making his West Indies debut in Perth, Smith is now tied for 14th place overall. Smith has played 88 Tests compared to the legendary Australian Bradman’s 52. Sachin Tendulkar, a legendary Indian cricketer, continues to set the bar with his 51 centuries.
Ricky Ponting, who participated in 168 games for the Australian team, holds the record for most test centuries with 41. Steve Waugh is second on the list with 32 centuries from 168 games, followed by Hayden. Australia is currently winning the first Test match between Australia and the West Indies. With a score of 293 for 2, the team dominated the first day and maintained it in the second.
