Steve Smith 2.0 sizes up South Africa rematch

“I feel in a good place,” Smith said. “I feel like I’m batting nicely, feel in good rhythm and I’m looking forward to it.

“I had a hit against the red ball this morning, preparation just changing from pink ball to the red, I was done batting in this game. So focus can now completely go to South Africa and I can’t wait.″⁣

As for the way the series will be played, Smith stated that Australia’s disciplinary record over nearly five years since Newlands spoke more loudly than anything he could articulate.

“The cricket we’ve played over the last four and a half years we’ve played in the right way, we’ve been hard and played in the right spirit,” Smith said. “So for us nothing changes, we’re just going to continue to go about our business and hopefully play good, entertaining cricket.”
