Smith is in the form of his life and is going through a purple patch. He has also smashed 24 sixes in four innings, which is the most. On Monday, he scored 66 runs against 33 balls against Hobart. He also smashed six maximums and four boundaries in his inning. Smith was looking good for his third century on the trot but got out to a full toss.

However, the moment of the game came in the second over of the first inning, when Joel Paris was bowling. The pacer conceded 16 runs on the third ball of the over. After hearing about it, it appears impossible, but it happened in the game.

Paris bowled a front-foot no-ball on the third ball of the over. Smith hit that ball for a six over the leg side. The next ball was free-hit, and the bowler bowled a wide on the leg side, and the keeper couldn’t stop the ball because it was too wide. The ball went for a boundary, and it was five extra runs for the Sydney Sixers.

Then, on the following ball, which was a free-hit, Smith scored a four to make it 16 runs off one legal delivery. That was the moment when Smith picked up the pace, and then he went totally berserk. He’s been on fire, scoring 328 runs in just four innings with a 109.33 average and a strikeout rate of 180.21. In just four games, he has climbed the list of leading run scorers.
