Aussies out to stop Kiwis

MELBOURNE. — Australia are working hard to deal with New Zealand’s dangerous swing bowlers, captain Steve Smith said yesterday on the eve of leading an advance touring cricket party across the Tasman Sea.

“We’re very hungry for New Zealand, we haven’t performed extremely well away from home recently,” Smith admitted. That’s a big thing on my agenda.”

Australia have won Test series at home against the West Indies and New Zealand this southern summer, but notably surrendered the Ashes in England last year.

“It’s gonna be a tough one for us, they (New Zealand) play very well at home,” Smith said.

He lifted the lid a little on what his team were doing to counter the threat from left-armer Trent Boult, ranked the world’s top ODI bowler. — AFP.
