Smith was rested from the Sydney Sixers' first two domestic Big Bash League Twenty20 matches as he treats knee and hip complaints.
Despite a heavy workload in recent months, Smith said he planned to play in the Melbourne and Sydney Tests against the West Indies and in next month's one-day and T20 home series against India. "I'd love to play every game. I think this little break is going to be good for me to make sure I can sustain it," Smith said.
"I'm just looking forward to everything else coming up and hopefully being out on the field every game. 'I think the rest will do me a world of good. Obviously there is plenty on for the rest of the summer and going forward so a little break is not a bad thing for me. I'm good to go for Boxing Day (Test)."
