Graeme Smith said his side was not smart enough

Johannesburg, Jan 16 (IBNS) South Africa captain Graeme Smith said his side was not smart with the bat as his side lost the second One-day International by one-run against India at the Wanderers here Saturday.

“We weren’t smart enough, especially with the bat,” Smith said.

South Africa allowed India to defend the second-lowest total of 189 at Wanderers, after the hosts had reached a position from where they could have won with at least ten overs to spare.

“Our batsmen needed to show more commitment. I don’t think it was a free flowing wicket, it was not easy to play your shots, you had to work hard out there. It required a solid performance,” he said.

“We needed to be a bit more solid, instead of searching for those glory shots.”
