Video - Smith On Feeling Good At The Crease

After his century on day one of the fifth and final Ashes Test in Sydney, Australia batsman Steve Smith says he is feeling good while batting at the moment.

He scored 115 - his second century of the series - to help Australia recover from 97 for five to be all out for 326 on the opening day and they ended by reducing England to eight for one in reply.

Smith, who added 118 with Brad Haddin for the sixth wicket, says he is not feeling any nerves at the crease.

"I haven't really played with too many nerves this series actually," he said.

"I've felt quite good every time I've been to the crease.

"Obviously I haven't converted into big scores as much I would have liked but I've certainly felt good at the crease and today I guess was my day."
