Smith broke Inzamam's special record
Smith has made a new record with this half century. He has become the player to consistently score the highest FIFTY Plus against any country. This is Smith's 10th consecutive fifth plus score. Smith has left Inzamam ul Haq of Pakistan behind. Inzamam had previously scored Fifty Plus 9 times in a row. It is a matter of coincidence that both players made these records against the same country i.e. England.
