Smith wants more bowling to be genuine Oz all-rounder
Adelaide: Australian all-rounder Steven Smith has said that he wants more bowling to stake his claims for a key role in the upcoming World Cup.
Smith recorded his best ODI bowling figures in Australia’s 21-run loss to England in the fourth ODI in Adelaide, taking 3-33 from seven overs.
“It was good to get a bit more of a bowl. I haven’t had much of a bowl in the first couple of games so it was great to get a few more overs under my belt,” a newspaper quoted Smith, as saying.
“Taking a few wickets, you’re always going to gain confidence from that. And coming into the next couple of games, hopefully I get a few more overs in and get a chance to take a few more wickets,” he added.
The 21-year-old further believes that his leg-spinners would continue to flourish given the chance, particularly on the Indian sub-continent.
“It was great to get in a bit of rhythm, to take a bit of confidence from that to take a few wickets. A genuine all-rounder is something that I want to do,” Smith said.
“I think it’s a role that I can play real well, in India particularly, in the World Cup, conditions that suit spin bowling, so hopefully I will get a chance to play over there and do a good job,” he added.
