Steve Smith can surpass Bradman to join an elite listLast updated on Nov 28, 2019, 06:02 pm
Australian star batsman Steve Smith can get past Sir Don Bradman when he sets out to bat in the Day-Night Test match against Pakistan.
Australia, who won the first Test in Brisbane, will aim to seal the two-match series against Azhar Ali's side.
The second Test starts Friday at the Adelaide Oval.
Here are the records Smith can script.
Smith 2nd Test
Smith will be raring to score runs against Pakistan
Smith was dismissed for four in the first Test by spinner Yasir Shah.
It was a rare failure for the right-handed batsman, who had a dream Ashes 2019.
Smith had amassed 774 runs against England as Australia retained the urn.
The series had ended 2-2.
However, Smith will be raring to have a crack in the D/N affair and score the runs for Australia.
Smith can surpass Bradman in terms of career Test runs
Smith needs just 20 runs to eclipse Bradman's mark in the list of highest run-scorers for Australia.
In 80 innings, Bradman scored 6,996 runs in an illustrious career.
Meanwhile, Smith has played 125 innings and scored 6,977 runs.
He also needs 23 runs to register 7,000 career Test runs.
Smith can become the 10th Australian batsman to do so.
Smith can script these feats as well
Smith has the most runs in Tests this year (778).
He can surpass the 800-run mark in the second Test.
He also needs seven fours to register the mark of 100 in 2019 (93).
No other batsman has achieved this tally so far this year.
He has also amassed three centuries and three fifties.
Another ton will help him steer clear from the pack.
Smith could have a solid end to 2019
Post this Day-Night Test, Australia have a three-match Test series lined up against New Zealand, starting December 12. With two Tests to be played in December, Smith has the chance to break many records in the format and score runs at will.
