Newly appointed Australian Test skipper Steven Smith, who will take the charge from retiring Michael Clarke after the ongoing Ashes 2015, has his agenda clear when he stressed on increasing their wins in the away Tests. After surrendering the Ashes with a 1-3 loss, Clarke announced his retirement from international cricket after the end of the fourth Test at Trent Bridge, inside three days. The fifth and the final Test at Oval will be the last appearance of Clarke, Brad Haddin and Chris Rogers for the Australian side.

According to a report from CricBuzz, Smith whose first assignment as the full-time skipper will be Australia s tour of Bangladesh, said, I guess the first aim for our team from this point, following on from the disappointment of this Ashes campaign, is to win more Test series away from home. That is something that s very high on my agenda, and something that we probably haven t done as well and as regularly as we would have liked over recent times.

Given that the first Test tour after Michael s final match at The Oval next week will be to Bangladesh, we have a chance to show that we can change that pattern by making sure we adapt to the different conditions that we encounter around the world. And that we play a brand of cricket that s going to bring us success, regardless of where matches are held. There s no denying this has been a disappointing tour of the UK for all of us, and for our supporters. READ: Steven Smith asks Australian public to back team after Ashes 2015
