Steve Smith defends his captaincy

Steve Smith defends his captaincy

Steve Smith has said Australia needed to adapt ahead of the Kolkata ODI against India after losing the first game in Chennai by 26 runs in a match reduced to 21 overs due to rain.

"I don't think so". Obviously, results haven't been as we liked for a little while and that's something we are trying to rectify. Guys have worked hard since we've been here in India. "We're ready to go tomorrow".

"It's disappointing start the series with a loss but we have another game tomorrow and we will try and turn things around", Smith said. "I'm not in a bad place with my captaincy", Smith told reporters when asked to comment on Clarke's remark. His desire for a sporting wicket to help both batsmen and bowlers may yet be beyond even his control. "I had to find the right tempo of the game, whether it's hitting fielders in the deep or knowing the right time to hit a boundary", the 28-year-old skipper said in reply to Clarke's criticism. When I first started playing one-day cricket, my first 30-odd games, I played more as a bowler. So had to change a bit there. In 60 innings since then, batting at either No.3, No.4 or No.5, his average balloons to 53, with eight hundreds and 17 half-centuries. "Looks like the wicket has been used somewhere", he said. I think he and David Warner will be the highest scorers for Australia in this series. But if the rain was to have a say on the length of the game again, in Kolkata, what would the skipper do?

"I think you're always learning". "As a batsman, Steve Smith is right up there; I think he and Virat Kohli are the two best batsmen in the world right now. You are never satisfied and I've learnt a long along the way".

"I think I've evolved a lot as a white-ball player. Yes, I have learnt a lot along the way but there's always so much more to learn and get better at as well", he concluded.

"I thought the guys that opened the bowling the other day, (Nathan) Coulter-Nile and (Pat) Cummins were exceptional upfront".

Their top three pacers - Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood and James Pattinson are not part of the touring squad because of injuries while explosive opener Aaron Finch is doubtful for the first three ODIs after pulling a calf muscle in his right leg.
