Smith wants his bowlers to raise their performances in second Test

Brisbane, Nov 14 (ANI): Proteas captain Graeme Smith wants his bowling attack to raise their performances in the second Test after an indifferent performance in the drawn first Test against Australia at the Gabba.

The bowlers only managed to take five Australian wickets and were troubled by indiscipline, despite creating opportunities and beating the bat a number of times.

"There is enough time to reflect, and to get one or two things right for Adelaide. I felt that we were ahead of the game going into day four having them at 42 for three; we just never backed up quite well enough with the ball," Smith said.

"Michael (Clarke) and Ed (Cowan) played really well and took the game to us and we didn't quite respond in the way that I'm used to our guys responding.

"I think there are a few areas to improve. All in all I think for me a draw is probably an even reflection of the way the surface played for both teams," Sport24 quoted him, as saying. (ANI)
