I have evolved as white-ball player, says century-man Steve Smith

I have evolved as white-ball player, says century-man Steve Smith”

Obviously results haven't been the way we would have liked and that's something we are trying to rectify. "The guys are working hard in the middle and we will ensure the job is done right there". "It's pretty exciting to play my 100th game", the 28-year-old said.

Australia had India reeling at 87-5 in Chennai before Hardik Pandya struck back with a blazing fifty.

On the eve of his 100th one-day worldwide, Steve Smith has defended his captaincy after criticism from predecessor Michael Clarke.

Kohli's men have a 1-0 lead in the ODI series and looking forward to their preparation for next match. "It was a disappointing start to the series but we've got a game tomorrow to turn things around".

Speaking to reporters on the eve of the milestone match, Smith said the 2015 World Cup semi-final hundred in Sydney against India was his "most memorable" knock of 50-over career.

The upcoming ODI will be Smith's 100th match since he made his debut in 2010 as a leg-spinner before making his mark as one of the best batsmen in world cricket. When I started playing ODI cricket, my first 30 odd games, I've played more as a bowler. So had to change a bit there. "The two (Starc and Hazzlewood) are our top bowlers", Smith said. "Looks like the wicket has been used somewhere", he said.

"It is something you learn as you play".

Former Australia skipper, Michael Clarke, also nodded to his craftsmanship as a batsman.

"I am still learning". "Whether it is hitting through and above the fielders at the deep or trying to find the right time for a boundary, I have evolved as a player", he reasoned. You can never be satisfied.

Coming to the match on Thursday, Smith said they are not concerned about playing spin and are ready to take on the Indians. I think we lost a wicket pretty early. The other day it was a shortened game.

"Yes I've learnt a lot along the way, but there's always so much to learn and get better at". "I thought the guys that opened the bowling the other day, (Nathan) Coulter-Nile and (Pat) Cummins were exceptional upfront".
