Virat Kohli and Steven Smith are 'Freak', Says Michael Vaughan

Speaking on Smith's performance, Ponting said that 28-year-old is better than some of the best players in the world at the moment.

Steve Smith, Joe Root and Virat Kohli are generally considered the best batsmen of this age.

Smith became the first Aussie skipper since 1993 to score a double hundred in the Ashes series, which prompted the former England captain to write on Twitter in praise of the current Australian captain.

Smith's both Test double centuries have come against England. He tweeted, "Just having a glass of vino I have decided Steve Smith has joined @imVkohli in the Freak Category.an incredible player". What are we going to bowl to Smith?'.

Australia were staring down the barrel of trouble when Smith arrived at the crease on day two, but 24 hours later he had for the second time this series flipped an Ashes Test match on its head and had England losing their tenuous grip on the urn.

"Luckily I had a plastic bag with water in it ... he said, 'I'll carry that for you, ' slipped the ring in there and (I didn't know)".

He said: "You look at his wagon wheel, he's got boundaries nearly all around the ground and there's no obvious weakness and with his appetite for runs that he's got he'll just keep batting forever. Imagine him back in the day when there were Timeless Tests, he would've just batted forever", Ponting told cricket.com.au.

Former Aussie cricketer Michael Slater has said that Smith is smart and can adapt to conditions well.

"I think it was his 53rd delivery that was the first time he'd faced Anderson".

Ponting added that Marsh's performance in Perth can boost his global Test career.

Some 20 minutes shy of lunch, Smith gave a rare glimpse of his pads to James Anderson and England captain Joe Root reviewed for leg before more in desperation than hope. Marsh went on to score his maiden Test ton and remained unbeaten on 181.

The key difference for Australia as opposed to so many of Smith's other masterclasses, was that it wasn't entirely a one-man show.
