"It's the one trophy that eluded us. We want to win every tournament and series that we play in. We are pretty settled. We have got 15 guys who can give this tournament a real shake," Smith said about the fifth ranked side.
"We played good in South Africa to win that series there. Guys have stepped up and we're in good form. It's going to take us squad mentality to do well in this tournament," the Aussie skipper said about the team who won in South Africa 3-1 before landing here.

Australia lost in New Zealand 1-2 in an ODI series before winning the Tests 2-0 and they travelled for the World T20 build-up to South Africa where they won 2-1.

"It's just about being positive. We've got a good squad together. We know what to expect. It's about going out there and making sure we can execute our skills. If we do that well hopefully we will win a lot of other games."

Asked whether they do not take the T20 format seriously, Smith said, "I would not say that's the case. We've pretty packed schedules. We play a lot of cricket. Sometimes, you don't see a lot of Test and ODI players in this format”.
