England clueless as Smith continues to dominate

Pacers ensured there was sustained pressure on England

"Not only that, Vaughan also feels that Kohli is the best player across three formats, but Smith is the best in Tests".

Ostensibly hailing Smith as the best batsman in the world, the legendary Tasmanian sounded reluctant to place the likes of Joe Root and Kane Williamson at a similar level to the unorthodox right-hander.

Steve Smith's Test average also crossed 61 during his knock - a figure second only to Sir Donald Bradman (99.94) among batsmen with more than 5000 runs in Test cricket. With his first double century at home, he became the first captain to score an Ashes Test double ton since Allan Border did so in 1993.

Smith's both Test double centuries have come against England.

He went on to bowl 13 overs, taking his overall figures to 23-1-102-2, and caused a rare moment of excitement amongst the travelling support when he threw down the stumps at the bowler's end.

A very, very sad day", he wrote. "Today I am gutted by the loss of Honey and Barry Sherman". He was reportedly found with his wife inside their home on Old Colony road.

"Luckily I had a plastic bag with water in it ... he said, 'I'll carry that for you, ' slipped the ring in there and (I didn't know)". Thanks to this acheivement, he joined fellow Australian Matthew Hayden as the only other player in Test history to have scored 1000 runs in a year on four consecutive occasions.

He said: "You look at his wagon wheel, he's got boundaries nearly all around the ground and there's no obvious weakness and with his appetite for runs that he's got he'll just keep batting forever. Imagine him back in the day when there were Timeless Tests he would've just batted forever!"

Mitchell Marsh played beautifully in his return to Test cricket to post a 100-run stand with Smith, which backed up partnerships of 100 (Khawaja) and 50 (Shaun Marsh) with the Australian skipper.

"I think he's the smartest batsman around". "Some of the striking and how clean and pure the striking has been today, this could be the start of a really long and successful global career now".

Smith is only behind Pujara in the list of most Test runs in 2017.
