The all-awaited India vs Australia test series 2023, also known by the name of the Border Gavaskar Trophy, will start from February 09 onwards. As both the teams gear themselves up for the 1st test match scheduled to be played in Nagpur, we take a close look at one of the premium Aussie batter Steve Smith’s performances in test matches on Indian soil. Smith has represented Australia in 6 test matches on Indian soil and was the touring team’s highest run-scorer in the previous test series in India in 2017.
