Steve Smith’s form has been staggering says Mark Butcher, after the Australia captain eased through to his fourth consecutive Test century on day two of the fourth Test against India. Robin Yount Jersey . 2015 is Sky Sports’ biggest every year of cricket. Join us as we bring it to life! He joins Don Bradman (who did it three times), Matthew Hayden (twice), Jack Fingleton and Neil Harvey in being the only Australians to do so – and Smith becomes the first ever to score three in a row as captain.Resuming day two at the SCG in Sydney on 82 not out, Smith added a further 35 runs to hit 117 in Australia’s score of 572-7 declared. “It is a staggering performance,” said Butcher. “When he started out in the 2010/11 Ashes series – everybody thought this guy can’t play, he’s a joker.“But he’s gone from strength to strength and just doesn’t show any signs of stopping.”Smith was dismissed just before lunch on day two, edging through to the keeper attempting a drive off Umesh Yadav.That left Australia on 415-4 with two new batsmen at the crease after the other not out batsman overnight, Shane Watson (81), perished a few overs prior.But Shaun Marsh (73) and Joe Burns (58) further pressed home Australia’s advantage and Smith opted to declare after tea and have a bowl at India – the visitors finishing the day on 71-1. Butcher says the way Smith has dealt with the added pressure of leading the side has been particularly impressive.“Hand him the captaincy, and what does he do – he just keeps scoring hundreds and breaking records on the way,” he said.“He’s come from nowhere to lead his country and he’s the first name on the teamsheet now for a team that’s playing brilliant cricket. You can’t speak highly enough of him.”If Australia bat again in this Test, Smith has the chance to break another record – if he scores nine runs or more in the second innings, it would be the most runs by an Australian in a four-match Test series, passing Ricky Ponting’s record of 706 which also came against India, in 2003/04.“The guy is in great form at the moment,” Butcher added. “He will go through a bad spell again, as everybody else does, and people will point to his slight idiosyncrasies he has when he’s batting and say that’s why.“But the fact of the matter is, when the bat comes down, it comes down square with the ball and with ferocious power.“And he just seems to have a real hunger for run-scoring, when he’s got himself into good form, he hasn’t wasted it.”Watch day three of the fourth and final Test between Australia and India live on Sky Sports 2 from 11.30pm.

Among the teams moves was trading one of the teams two third round picks, no. 83 overall, to the Chicago Blackhawks for Brandon Bollig, a six-foot-two, 223-pound left-winger who had seven goals, seven assists, and 92 penalty minutes in 82 games last season.MINNEAPOLIS -- Chris Sale credits his offensive support for helping him settle into a good rhythm on the mound. It might actually be the other way around, with Sales dominating starts taking pressure off the Chicago White Sox hitters. Either way, its working. Sale tied a season high with 12 strikeouts in eight dominant innings, Alexei Ramirez hit his 10th homer, and the White Sox beat Minnesota 7-0 on Saturday night for their third straight win over the Twins. Sale (10-1) scattered five hits -- all singles -- and became the first White Sox starter to win 10 of his first 11 decisions in a season since Mark Buehrle in 2005. "I think this is probably the fastest Ive seen him work," White Sox manager Robin Ventura said. "Just getting the ball, not a lot of shaking off or anything like that. He was just throwing. And he was throwing everything, too." Sale had a double-digit strikeout total for the 15th time in his career, moving him into a tie for second on the teams all-time list with Juan Pizarro. Sales 1.88 ERA is the lowest mark among qualified pitchers in the majors, and hes allowed just three earned runs in July. The White Sox, fourth in the AL Central at 51-54, are still longshots to make the playoffs. However, they have won seven of their last 10 games and can sweep the Twins in a four-game series for the first time since 2008 before travelling to first-place Detroit. "Weve got all the right pieces in all the right places," Sale said. "Its just a matter of stringing some wins together. Obviously were all very comfortable with each other and we have confidence in each other to go out there and produce and to win games." Chicago had its way against Twins starter Logan Darnell (0-1) in his first major league start. A day after being recalled to fill in for injured Kyle Gibson, Darnell allowed seven runs and 11 hits while striking out seven in five innings. "I really wasnt nervous," Darnell said. "If anything I was just trying to focus on what my plan was and I thought I stayed with it, even though it didnt really pan out the way I wanted. Christian Yelich Jersey. quot; With the White Sox leading 2-0 in the fifth and Gordon Beckham on first, Ramirez hit his second homer in two nights when his drive off a changeup from Darnell hit off the foul pole in left field. The White Sox led off the next inning with four straight hits -- including a run-scoring double by Tyler Flowers and an RBI single by Alejandro De Aza -- to chase Darnell. "Its not really how you picture it," Darnell said of his first big-league start. Beckhams sacrifice fly to centre off Ryan Pressly scored Flowers to made it 7-0. Daniel Webb pitched a scoreless ninth for Chicago. The Twins are 2-7 since the All-Star break. "Its tough to play from behind," said Chris Colabello, who went 0 for 4. "Especially you lose a couple in row, you get behind again and all of a sudden negative thoughts went through your mind and its tough to fight those sometimes." NOTES: White Sox OF Jose Abreu singled in the ninth to push his hitting streak to 16 games. Hes hit safely in 34 of his last 35 games overall. ... Twins GM Terry Ryan said Gibson (back) should start Tuesday at Kansas City. ... Ventura sounded optimistic that OF Avisail Garcia (shoulder) would play again this season, possibly by September. "Its pretty amazing, just his recovery time and how he looks and how healthy he looks," he said. Ventura also said RHP Matt Lindstrom is expected to throw a simulated game on Tuesday at Detroit. ... Twins 1B Joe Mauer (strained oblique) took grounders during batting practice, but did not take any swings. Manager Ron Gardenhire also said RHP Ricky Nolasco (elbow) is expected to throw three or four bullpen sessions over the next week. ... White Sox RHP Scott Carroll (4-6), who is 2-1 with a 2.70 ERA in his last three starts, makes his second career appearance against Minnesota when Chicago goes for the four-game sweep on Sunday. Minnesota sends Yohan Pino (1-3) to the mound to make his seventh start of the season.
