In this quiz, you have to name every batsman dismissed by Steve Smith in international cricket.

Steve Smith might be regularly in the news for eclipsing a new batting record, but we’re taking a break from his exploits with the bat and recalling the deeds of Smith, the leg-spinner. It’s a well-known fact that Smith started off as a spinner who could bat a bit, before reversing his preferred skill-set and turning into a world-class batsman, leaving his leg-spin days behind him almost completely.

While he still turns his arm over now and then, Smith took a majority of his 62 international wickets in the first half of his career. You need to guess all the batsman he managed to get the better of through the course of his ten-year-long Australia journey.

We have mentioned the span in which Smith bowled to the batsmen, along with the country they represented. It’s not an easy ask: while he did dismiss some of world cricket’s best batsmen, he also picked up a few obscure victims that you may have trouble recalling.
