Star Australian batter Steve Smith on Thursday, January 5, reacted to his chainsaw celebration after scoring a magnificent hundred on the second day of the third and final Test against South Africa at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
Smith accumulated 104 off 192 balls in Australia’s first innings, laced with 11 fours and two sixes on the way of his 30th Test ton.
Smith went past legendary player Don Bradman’s record of 29 Test centuries. He raised his bat towards the Australia dressing room before putting it down and acting a chainsaw celebration.
“Marn (Labuschagne) was complaining about getting chainsawed. The delivery by Anrich Mortje that got his wicket kicked up in getting chainsaw.”
“I told him he was out on 70 runs anyway, and he is right. He urged me to stop being negative and hoped I would get the chainsaw. So when I completed my century, I showed the chainsaw.”
