Smith: Team display is encouraging

“I think with the cricket we’ve played we have deserved two wins but we got two draws while it’s disappointing, it’s also very, very  encouraging that we’re playing that kind of cricket, I said last week that if we continue to play that kind of cricket we’ll get many wins on the board so I’m going to say exactly the same thing here.”

Rain played a huge part in the result of the match with just 24 overs possible on day three and around 15 overs lost on the final day due to showers.

“It’s just frustrating that we lost a bit of time to weather and some good batting from their guys on the last day but if we continue to play the same kind of cricket we will definitely be winning a lot of games.

“Everyone has featured, everyone has done well, obviously with Graham’s call up it’s an opportunity for someone else to show their hand in the next match.  That’s the great thing, sometimes at the start of the year you might have a few people who are struggling for form but everyone seems to be in fairly decent order which is very encouraging. 
“Now the challenge is for every guy to take that on and make sure we continue to produce that.”
