India vs Australia 1st ODI : Steve Smith blames balls for shameful defeat

Australian skipper Steve Smith has blamed two new balls for shameful defeat in the 1st ODI against India. “I think 160 with one new ball would have made things a lot easier. When you have two new balls from both ends, as you saw the whole game, we took three wickets with the new ball and they found it quite hard. It was the same for us. When you are playing 20 overs, you don’t have a great deal of time to make things up. You need eight an over basically from ball one. It was difficult in that aspect. Perhaps we could have been a little bit more defensive at the start, keep wickets in hand and gone harder later.”
