Australia now trail 0-2 in the five-game series. "Batters again made poor decisions under pressure. And we can't afford to do that against a quality line-up like India," said Smith.

Smith said victory would have been theirs, had one of the top four batsmen come up with a hundred. "We needed to get those partnerships. Had we done that, we would have got to our target comfortably," he said. Smith lauded the Indian bowlers. "Their base is covered. They have got some quality spinners. And Bhuvi (Bhuvneshwar Kumar) and (Jasprit) Bumrah Bumrah at the top... they swing the ball and bowl in the good areas, which we want from fast bowlers."
