Steve Smith underlines Test quality with flawless double century against West Indies in Perth
Steve Smith has made a little bit more cricket history, matching Sir Donald Bradman with his 29th Test century on day two of the series opener against the West Indies in Perth.

....

Only Sachin Tendulkar and Bradman himself have reached 29 Test hundreds in fewer innings than Smith.

Smith has his nose ahead of contemporary superstars like Joe Root (28), Virat Kohli (27) and Kane Williamson (24), and he's now fifth on the all-time Australian rankings in terms of Test tonnage.

With one more he will equal legendary opener Matthew Hayden, who reached 30 in 103 Tests, so Smith (playing his 88th) has plenty of time to eclipse him.

Ahead of Hayden are only Steve Waugh with 32 and Ricky Ponting with 41, with both players veterans of a whopping 168 Tests.
So far, Smith is making a century every 3 Tests. Ponting made a century every 4 and a bit Tests and Steve Waugh a century every 5 and a bit Tests. Tendulkar made a century every 4 Tests (51 from 200 Tests). Viv Richards made 1 every 5 Tests.
