“It’s pretty ordinary. Not good enough for an Australian cricket team and we need to start turning the results around and winning some games.”

“It’s been a bit of a trend for this format and the test format as well.”

“We’re quite often getting ourselves into good positions and we’re not taking advantage of those and today was no different.”

“It’s always hard to take when you lose,” Smith said. “(As captain) you’ve got to continue to try and motivate them and get them up for their next two games.”

“We continually address it and it’s just hard to put the finger on exactly what it is we’re doing or not doing to get the results we’re after.”
