Despite serving a one-year suspension given by Cricket Australia for his role in an infamous ball-tampering scandal, former Australian skipper Steve Smith has made it to the 2018 Australian Financial Review (AFP) Young Rich List for the first time. 

According to a report published by news.com.au, the 29-year-old has collected a total personal wealth of USD 27 million in the year 2018.

Overall, the batsman is placed on 95th position in the AFR Rich List.

The list is headed by Australian basketball player Andrew Bogut, who recently joined the National Basketball League's Sydney Kings.

In March, Smith, along with opener David Warner, was handed a one-year ban by the Cricket Australia following a massive ball-tampering scandal that took place during the third Test match of the four-match series against South Africa at New Lands.

Subsequently, the right-hand batsman had not only lost the Australian captaincy but also some lucrative associations including the Indian Premier League contract.
