“When you work on bio-secure environment protocols for Covid-19, you work with other member nations and if member nations don’t support each other and play cricket, cricket’s going to find itself in a very challenging space,” Smith was quoted as saying in a virtual press conference.
Smith further said that an altogether different team would be sent on their next international assignment to Australia. The recently concluded Border-Gavaskar Trophy where India defeated Australia 2-1 has given new life to red-ball cricket and Graeme Smith is motivated to play Test matches in the land of Kangaroos.
“We would love to get our home summer completed, and Australia are a big part of that home summer. We saw from the Australia-India series the hype around Test cricket. I think it’s going to be a great test of where we are as a squad. We are motivated,” Smith added.
South Africa will be playing two Tests and three T20Is against Pakistan between January 26 to February 14.
