History-making hundred-maker Will Smeed says he has "aspirations in all three formats" after making a surprise impression in white-ball cricket.
The 20-year-old hit an unbeaten 101 off just 50 balls during Birmingham Phoenix's win over defending champions Southern Brave at Edgbaston.
Not only was it his first century, but he also became the first player in either the men's or women's competition to score a century in The Hundred.
Inevitably, it has led to speculation over a possible England engagement for Somerset batsman Smeed,
with Jose Buttler's side facing seven T20 matches in Pakistan next month before the World Cup in Australia.
Smeed, who agreed a contract early next year to play in the UAE-hosted International T20 League, will return to action for the Phoenix against the Welsh Fire in Cardiff on Saturday
"I still have aspirations in all three formats." Smeed said. I still want to play everything,
“When I'm away from cricket, I don't think too much about the game.
" it is just another cricket and every time I'm out there I try to do my job for the team. The path I've taken so far is a lot of white-ball cricket."
