CricketSmith warns his players India will `come back hard'

PUNE: Having turned the tables on India in spectacular fashion in the first Test, Australian captain Steven Smith believes his team can get better and has set his eyes on winning a series in the subcontinent after a gap of more than 12 years.

“I wouldn’t say it was perfect. We did a lot of things right in this Test, that’s for sure. But there are still areas that we can improve on,” Smith said after the win on Saturday .steve smith

The last time the Aussies won a series in India was in 2004-05. Smith, a cricket with a keen sense of history, didn’t need a reminder.
“Coming to India, we haven’t won a game here in 4,502 days,” the visiting skipper said, referring to their victory in Nagpur on a green-tinged track at the VCA ground.
Smith has his eyes firmly set on replicating the success of the side led by Ricky Ponting. “But it’s going to be a tough road, we know India are going to come back incredibly hard. They’re an amazing team particularly in their own backyard. And we’ve got to be ready for it.”
It’s a remarkable turnaround for Australia and Smith personally after he flew back home midway through the ODI series in Sri Lanka in August last year.
