Smith was a member of the Rajasthan Royals (RR) from 2014 to 2020 but during Rajasthan Royal’s suspension in the 2019 and 2020 seasons, Smith joined the Rising Pune SuperGiants (RPSG) and led them to the finals in 2017.

In the absence of Pat Cummins, who missed the series due to the death of his mother, he has also led Australia in two Test matches and the entire ODI series against India. After Tim Paine was fired as captain in November 2021, Smith was named Cummins’ deputy.
