Sky Sports Statsman Benedict Bermange has all the key numbers after another day of domination in Australia with Steve Smith and Usman Khawaja featured in Sydney …

Steve Smith obviously enjoys beating at the Sydney Cricket Ground, registering his 10th score of at least 50 there. He is the fastest hitter to score up to 10 of these scores on any ground:

Few innings at 10 + 50 scores in a single venue

Player Squad Land inning
Steve Smith Australia Sydney 13
Greg Chappell Australia Melbourne 14
Misbah-ul-Haq Pakistan Abu Dhabi 14
Hashim Amla South Africa Centurion 14
Don Bradman Australia Melbourne 15

Smith shared his third partnership of over 100 with Usman Khawaja at Sydney Cricket Ground, in three innings combined.

This is the 10th consecutive year that Smith has scored at least 50 points in the first test he has beaten during the year – the first player to achieve that feat.

This is the second consecutive Sydney Ashes test in which Usman Khawaja reached his century on January 6. Four years ago he scored 171.

By the time he reached 113, Khawaja became the 200th player to score at least 3,000 test points.

Stuart Broad became the oldest English seamstress to take a five-wicket radius in Australia since Freddie Brown took 5-49 in Melbourne in 1951 at the age of 40.

Prior to this test, Nathan Lyon had scored a total of 17 points in 10 tests at the Sydney Cricket Ground. Today he scored 16 points in just 12 minutes!
