“I’m speechless,” Sixers captain Moises Henriques said. “To think we wouldn’t let him play last year.” Courtesy an unbeaten 155-run stand for the third wicket with captain Moises Henriques, the Thunder have posted 187 for 2 in the allotted 19 overs.

Speaking more about Smith’s century, he completed both his centuries with a six. Against Adelaide Strikes, the right-handed batter reached the feat in just 56 balls, including five boundaries and seven sixes. On Saturday against Sydney Thunders, Smith smoked a 66-ball 125 with the help of five boundaries and nine sixes and call it a sheer incident, he again completed his century in 56 balls. In two matches he has managed to hit 16 sixes.

Over the past years, Smith has been heavily criticized for his performance in shortest format of the game. Once a regular member of the Australian T20I squad, the senior batter has struggled to cement his place in the 20-over format. Smith has represented Australia in 63 T20I games and has amassed 1008 runs with a decent strike rate of 125. With Smith hitting back to back centuries, the doors for him to make a comeback in Australia’s T20I squad might open yet again.
