Steve Smith has some staggering records to prove why he deserved this award. The Aussie scored 7040 runs from 69 Tests at an average of 65.79 which included 26 hundreds, 28 fifties and 3 Ashes double centuries. Often considered as one of the best batsmen for Australia in the modern era, he was banned from international cricket for a year in 2018.
