An invaluable all-rounder and already known as  one of the best fielders in world cricket, 25-year-old Steve Smith has been a consistent performer for the Sixers since he first pulled on the magenta in BBL|01. A talented player across all formats, ‘Smithy’ has represented Australia in 20 Tests , 34 ODIs and 20 T20Is and there a sure to be more to come.

2014 was a coming of age for Smith, who after two seasons on the fringes of the Aussie Test squad, cemented his place in the middle order after strong performances in tours of India and The Ashes. After receiving the backing of the Aussie selectors in the long format, he’ll use this season to remind them of his credentials in both One Day and T20 Cricket.

An avid movie fan who is happy to ask for recommendations via Twitter, Steve has struck up a good friendship with Shane Warne who he uses as a mentor. A keen tennis player who lists Pete Sampras as one of his heroes growing up, Steve would love to meet Roger Federer and play a set against him.
