Steve Smith’s manager rules retirement out ahead of Test teammate David Warner’s farewell

Steve Smith’s manager rules retirement out ahead of Test teammate David Warner’s farewell

Read Time:3 Minute, 40 Second

Steve Smith will not follow longtime Aussie teammate David Warner into retirement — not any time soon, anyway, according to his manager.

Warner is approaching his final days as a Test cricketer, with a farewell set for his home ground in Sydney against Pakistan, should he retain his place in the team until then.

The 37-year-old will be the first domino to fall as Australian cricket edges closer to the precipice of a new era, given its growing list of ageing stars.

Warner is the oldest of a whopping nine players over 30 in the current Test team, which includes opening partner Usman Khawaja, who turns 37 this month, Nathan Lyon (36), Smith (34), Mitch Starc (33), Mitch Marsh, Josh Hazlewood and Alex Carey (all 32), and Pat Cummins (30).

Travis Head, who is seen as a potential long-term successor to skipper Pat Cummins, also turns 30 in late December but is showing no signs of slowing down.

Smith’s place in the side is under no pressure, despite a lean patch of recent form by his impossibly high standards, but he has been ambiguous in his commitment to international cricket when asked about it over the past 12 months.

But the champion batter’s manager has put to bed any suggestion Smith could follow Warner into what would be a reasonably early retirement.

“I can debunk that (retirement rumour) at this point in time,” Warren Craig told The Age.

“He’s still talking about things he wants to achieve.”

Front of mind for Smith will be the opportunity Australia has to hold all three major ICC men’s trophies at the same time if they can win the T20 World Cup in the West Indies and USA next year.

He will also have one eye on welcoming India to Australia for the first five-Test Border-Gavaskar Trophy since 1991-92, hoping to exact revenge on the Indians, who have won their past two tours Down Under.

Smith first set alarm bells firing in January this year when he refused to confirm whether the third Test against South Africa would be his last on Australian soil.

He told reporters after day two at the Sydney Test that he couldn’t guarantee he would still be playing when this summer rolls around.

“I don’t know. We’ll see,” Smith said at the time, though it is now clear he is playing.

“I’m enjoying it at the moment. I really can’t say how long I’ll play for. I’m not sure.

“(I’ll) take it one to that I’m happy playing. But I don’t know how long it’ll last.”

Smith had hinted before that he may not be around for as long as the cricket world expects and hopes he might, but January’s admission was the strongest indication yet that he may have been entertaining thoughts of the r-word.

He has long established himself as a modern great of Australian cricket, and will go do down as one of the best batters the country has ever seen.

He already sits fourth on Australia’s all-time Test run scorers list, and could soon join Ricky Ponting, Alan Border and Steve Waugh as the only Australian men to score 10,000 Test runs.

Just how far up the record books he climbs, it seems, is up to him.

“I don’t think about that stuff a great deal, but I did look up at the board just after I got a hundred and to sit third on the list of all-time Australians, there’s some pretty big names there so that’s pretty cool,” Smith said.

“Fourth on the run scorers list (too) … I don’t play for that kind of stuff but it was cool to look up and see my name amongst those great players. It was pretty special.”
