As the English fans taunted the Aussies with sandpaper on day 1 of the 1st Ashes Test, the visitors were reminded of their ugly past. Despite the boos, Steve Smith produced a batting masterclass which was in a way the perfect answer to the taunting fans. Smith said, "It doesn't bother me to be perfectly honest. I know that I've got the support of the guys in the room and for me that's all that really matters. They went berserk on the balcony went I got to 100 and just looking up at them, it really sent shivers down my spine. It's been a long time coming, getting another Test 100."
