Australia batsman Steve Smith believes that India has a good chance of winning the T20 World Championship as they have a “terrific” roster and experience playing in terms of the UAE as not long ago in the Indian Premier League.
India Batters chased the total slightly down at 17.5 overs with 9 wickets. In hand, Rohit Sharma hit an undefeated 60-run on 41 balls.
“They’ve all been playing in these conditions the last couple of months with the IPL (Indian Premier League). So they’ll be used to that,” he added.
Speaking on Australia’s innings, he added: “Obviously never easy when you’re three down in the first three overs. You have to rebuild for a period there. I thought we did that pretty well, the partnerships with Maxi (Glenn Maxwell) and Stoin (Marcus Stoinis) were important.”
On being asked about his own performance in the match after an insipid show in the IPL.
“I feel like I have been hitting the ball really well. I haven’t obviously played too many games at the IPL. But I spent a lot of time in the nets working on things. And getting used to the conditions, which has been nice.
“It’s a lot cooler than it was a month or so ago which is nice. But I feel like I am in a good place with my game and hopefully. The guys have got a bit out of these last two hit-outs and are ready to go for game one.”
“But you want to be playing good enough to get to that point,” he signed off.
