‘To succeed in India, you’ve got to forget what you do in Australia’ – Steven Smith
Steven Smith talks about the challenges that an India tour presents, lessons from Sri Lanka, and how the side’s senior players need to step up.
He added, We had lost five Test matches in a row, and that is unacceptable from my point of view, so we had to do something to turn that around. We had some changes in personnel and got some younger guys in. We probably didn’t think they would perform as well as they did straight away, which has been very pleasing. I felt a shift in energy and enthusiasm and attitude around the group, and that was from the very first time we got together in Adelaide, before the Test match. Since then everything has gone pretty well. Australia captain Steven Smith has challenged his deputy David Warner to do a Karun Nair and go on to make the sort of monumental scores that will be essential if the tourists are to have any hope of besting India at home next month.
In a frank interview with a news website, Smith also declared his side’s recent aggressive batting approach in Asian conditions to be “rubbish” and pinpointed the left-arm spinner Steve O’Keefe as critical to Australia’s chances.
