Steve Smith double century

Australia captain Steve Smith once again stood like a mountain in front of England as the latter couldn’t capitalize on their overnight momentum on the second day of the third Ashes Test in Perth on Friday.

In reply to England’s 403, after ending the day at 203 for three, the Australian skipper struck a double-century to put the Englishmen in big trouble on day three at the WACA.

Smith completed the milestone from 301 balls shortly after tea and alongside Mitch Marsh, who earlier delighted his home crowd by marking his return with a maiden Test century, powered Australia into a burgeoning first-innings lead of 57 with an unbroken stand of 212.
