Smith admits Oz will try to 'belt Swann out of attack' during first Ashes Test


Sydney, Nov 17 (ANI): Australian all-rounder Steve Smith has said that his team's batsmen will target England spinner Graeme Swann in the first Ashes Test starting on Thursday.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Swann starred in England's 3-0 Ashes win in the northern hemisphere, leading the wicket tally with 26 at an average of 29 over the five matches.

However, he is learning that life may not be as comfortable in foreign conditions.

Smith made little secret by saying that Australia believes it can expose a significant chink in the tourists' armour by attacking the England spinner, the report said. (ANI)
