Winning Test series in India is major career goal: Steve Smith


Sydney: Australian and number one ICC ranked Test batsman Steve Smith has revealed that India is one of the toughest places to win a Test series and winning there is a major career goal for him.

“I would love to win a Test series in India,” The 30-year-old said to New Zealand leg-spinner in a podcast.

“I think as an Australian cricketer we talk about like Ashes is always, World Cup is big but now India is no,1 team and I think it is a very difficult place to play Test cricket, so I would love to win a series there,” he added.

Apart from it, Smith said that he doesn’t set too many goals as he takes things day by day, series by series and just tries to improve.

He also praised Indian left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja and termed him as a difficult bowler to face in the subcontinent.

“Jadeja in the sub-continent, why he is so good because he hits that good length and one ball skids on and one spins, and it just all looks the same out of the hand. Jadeja is one of them. He is very difficult to play,” he maintained.
