Steve Smith is one of the finest batsmen in this era. Although he started his career as a leg spinner, his talent with the bat was exceptional. After Michael Clarke announced his retirement, Smith managed to build up a strong Aussie squad.

But, he was suspended for a year because of the ball-tampering scandal. Smith has played 45 T20I games so far. In the shortest format of the game, he has a decent strike rate of 129.53.

Apart from that, he usually plays the role of an anchor. In any given circumstances, Smith is a handy T20 batsman for any team. During the 2017 IPL, he was the captain of Rising Pune Supergiant, a team that went on to reach the finals of the season.

In the 2022 mega auction, Smith could be a good choice for teams who are looking forward to the future. A proven performer and a decent captain with a good squad could be the formula to success for any franchise that wants to lift the trophy.
