On a sluggish and extremely challenging wicket, Smith's tenaciousness was on full display as he swaggered to a tremendous century against New Zealand in the 3rd ODI.
The stylish batter, who thrives in adverse conditions, played a remarkable knock of 105 runs in 131 balls with the help of 11 fours and a six.
After his spectacular ton, Smith matched Matthew Hayden's record in the list of most international hundreds for Australia. Let's take a closer look at the top 5.
During his 14-year career with the Baggy Greens, Mark Waugh smashed 38 centuries in 372 matches, which is three more than his brother Steve Waugh.
In 272 matches for Australia, the former swashbuckling southpaw Matthew Hayden smashed 40 tons during his career.
So far in his glittering international career, Steve Smith has accounted for 40 centuries in 280 matches and he is bound to score more in the coming years.
Smith is now three centuries behind his good friend and teammate David Warner, who has smashed 43 international centuries in his career so far.
Both Smith and Warner have to do a lot of work to catch Ricky Ponting, who smashed 70 centuries in international cricket during his career.
