    His name certainly makes finding him on Wikipedia a bit of a chore. I think there are 2 articles for him at the moment...

    I was there, he redeemed himself by winning the match with 4-15, denying Bracken the chance to bowl the last over

    Agreed, Hauritz is miles better that Casson, but he's still average

    My exact thoughts when I read this title immediately, being the non-Twenty20-follower I am.

    Smith has played second team cricket for both Kent and Surrey. The latter would love to have him back, he did pretty well for Surrey in his short time with the club and excelled with the bat down the order.

    Well Steven Smith has scored his first FC hundred. I definitely think that if he keeps improving at the rate that he is, he will certainly play limited over cricket for Australia in a few years, maybe even tests.

    Should be a cert for a OD call-up this year, no doubt. Will probably play tests, but for some reasons he just smells of another Cameron White.

    His bowling will most likely go the way of White.

    I've changed my tunes about Steve Smith. Earlier this year I wasn't overly convinced, but now I think he has potential in the shorter formats and there is nothing stopping him really of finding a way into an Australian top 6 in the future.

    However his bowling is absolutely rubbish and needs drastic improvement.
