Smith hungry for title


Smith pointed to South Africa’s away Test series win in Australia and England, apart from one-day glory, and said he would love to cap it by winning the ICC World Twenty20 title on June 21.

“We have had a wonderful past 12 months which has included winning away Test series in both England and Australia and winning home and away ODI series against Australia to gain top spot in the ICC world rankings,” he said.

“One of the boxes we still want to tick is to win a major ICC championship and we have two chances to do that in the ICC World T20 next month and again in the ICC Champions Trophy which will be held in South Africa at the end of September,” Smith said.

“I have been very happy with the form our players have shown in the IPL in the run-up to the ICC World T20 and this augurs well for a good performance,” Smith said.
