Steve Smith Speaks Ahead of Tour Match Against Derby

Australia batsman Steve Smith spoke to the media ahead of the three-day tour match against Derby, beginning on Thursday.

Smith had made scores of 144, 142 and 92 in the first three innings of this Ashes series before being ruled out half way through the second Test at Lord’s with concussion.

He was also ruled out of the recently completed third Test at Headingley, which England claimed by just one wicket in a dramatic finish.

The series is now level at one all after Australia won the first Test at Edgbaston by 251 runs and the second Test at Lord’s was a draw.
