# Thread: How many hundreds will Smith score?

1. ## How many hundreds will Smith score?

Smith will play for another 7-8 years. That's about 75-80 Tests for AUS. 26 hundreds in 68 Tests so far. Can he break the record?

2. I think he will end up around 45. Don't see him playing enough Tests to break Tendulkar's record.

3. 20×(e^1).

Somewhere around .

4. All of them.

5. 50+ as long as he plays for the time you mentioned which he probably will.

6. I hope he ends up with at least 52 if only to beat you know who .....lol

Hope he doesn't do it as an homage to 100 tons.

8. A coupla

9. He should be able to at least get close if he keeps going like this. Avg 64+ is unreal. Perhaps there will be a decline. I can't see him overstaying for records though.

10. Being more of a hand eye coordination player than being 'technically perfect' , Smith's terminal decline may happen a bit earlier than normal. Other wise it is a given that he would go past the record '51 100s'

11. How long is a piece of string

I don't think it's a given he'll get anywhere near 50 hundreds. I am not sure people realise how immense that number is. It took the one guy who has that many over two decades to accumulate them all. 35-40 is a far more realistic number IMO.

14. Somewhere between 26 and 52.

I think lots of batsmen find consistently converting scores to hundreds a struggle once they cross a certain age. Sachin used to get a lot of excellent 80s-90s in his last couple of years but just didn't have the endurance to get past 3 figures, which used to be effortless for him in his prime.
