Normalcy Restored, Steve Smith Scores Century in Sheffield Shield Game Against Tasmania

After a brief setback, Steve Smith was back to his usual self scoring a century for New South Wales in the Sheffield Shield game against Tasmania at Drummoyne Oval in Sydney on Saturday (October 19).

After a stellar Ashes series where he made 774 runs in seven innings, Smith returned to Sheffield Shield action with a duck in the first innings against Queensland, before making 21 in the second.

Smith was back to his best against Tasmania, remaining unbeaten on 102 at stumps on Day 2. Moises Henriques was 116 not out as NSW reached 275 for 2 in reply to Tasmania's 268 all out.

Smith took 241 balls for his knock, and hit 11 fours.

David Warner suffered a reversal in fortunes as he fell for 1. He had begun the domestic season with 125 and 0 in the previous game, following a terrible Ashes tour where he made only 98 runs across 10 innings.

Smith walked in at 1 for 1 after Warner's dismissal in the fourth over and batted through the day. Henriques and Smith have added an unbroken 186 for the third wicket.
