Australia don’t have a good track record in the Asian sub-continent condition in recent times as they have only two wins in their kitty in last 10-year span, courtesy their victories over India and Sri Lanka.

However, the Aussie skipper Steve Smith said that he was on a mission to change the fortune of the Aussies in the subcontinent.

The right-handed batsman deems it as an opportunity and said that they will try to change the record by showcasing their skills and experience what they have learnt over there.

“Now it’s an opportunity for us to change that,” the lad who hails from New South Wales, said.

He added on the same, “I thought we did some things really well in India. We just needed to do it for little bit longer, and consistently. This is another opportunity to showcase our skills, show what we learned over there and hopefully give our best foot forward.”

The Australian team have arrived in Dhaka on Friday (August 18) and will play two Test matches that are scheduled to be played in Dhaka and Chittagong.
