New Delhi, Nov 30 (UNI) After thrashing minnows Bangladesh 2-0 in just concluded Test series, South Africa skipper Graeme Smith said his team will show the same level of commitment in the upcoming series against Australia as well.

South Africa defeated Bangladesh by an innings and 48 runs in the second Test match. The visitors dished out a similar performance even in the first Test posting a thumping win of an innings and 148 runs.

''All the guys really worked hard. The intensity with which we played is the intensity with which we want to play in Australia,'' Smith said on 'Sky Sports 1'.

''We will have all bases covered now and we will be best prepared as we can be, and it will be about going out there and hopefully performing well in the field which we have done over the last year and a half,'' he added.

Smith also asserted that each and every member of the team will perform their best to beat the World Champions.

''I have every faith with every guy that comes on tour with me to do the job and produce performances to make people of South Africa proud,'' he added.

Meanwhile, the postponement of the Champions League has also provided an option of extra practice game in Australia.

The second ranked team in the ICC Test Championship table will play Australia in an away and home basis.

South Africa has been very consistent in the longest version winning its last nine Tests. However, it is yet to win a Test series in Australia.
