The Journey: My Story, from Backyard Cricket to Australian Captain by Steve Smith
Brand New Original Paperback
The Journey is Steve Smith’s account of his life and career to date. From childhood backyard cricket with mates and family, and net sessions with his dad that laid the foundations for his later success, Steve traces the influences and events that started him on his cricket journey.
He takes us inside his quest to play cricket at the highest level, from formative club and grade games, to his first overseas experiences, and finally to state cricket and the Australian squad. It’s a journey with both ups and downs, where valuable and lasting lessons were learned from the successes and, more importantly, the failures.
And Steve compellingly describes the key moments that shaped him into the cricketer and leader he is today, from his definitive hundred at Centurion in South Africa, to the soul-searching and resolve that accompanied the Australian team’s lowest point in the 2016 Hobart Test, to the epic 2017 series in India.
