Australia captain Steve Smith is all set for the Boxing Day Test against England despite suffering a hand injury on Sunday.Smith got hit on his right hand as a Cameron Bancroft shot hit him while batting in the nets at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.The 28-year-old said he had been in pain on Sunday and again on Monday when he was batting during training but it would not affect him when he leads his side out on Tuesday as they continue their push for a series whitewash.”It was a little bit sore today playing a few different shots” he told reporters. “But I’ll be able to deal with it and I’ll get on with it.”Maybe I’ll just have to use a bit more of my top hand throughout the game, a bit less wristy.”I copped a few (on the right hand) in the nets in Perth and a few more in the game. It just seems to be whenever you’re getting hit in a spot – it just continually gets hit.”Australia regained the Ashes last week after defeating England by an innings and 41 runs in the third Test at Perth to go 3-0 up in the 5-match series.Smith said that Bancroft had apologised profusely for the incident.”I didn’t give him much (initially). He kept coming up … it’s all good, accidents happen,” Smith said.The Australians had been forced to make one change from the side that hammered England in Perth to seal the series with Mitchell Starc ruled out due to a heel injury and replaced by Jackson Bird.advertisementWhile Starc had been instrumental in regaining the trophy with his express pace, late swing and aggression, Bird was more than capable of stepping into fill his shows, Smith said, even if the pitch was not expected to be overly helpful to the bowlers.”It looks pretty flat. It doesn’t look like there will be great deal of sideways movement, maybe a bit of reverse swing as the game goes on,” he said.”Hopefully we can get the ball reversing and hopefully there’s a little bit of spin for Nath (Nathan Lyon).”We’ve been able to get results here in the last couple of years. We’re going to have work hard, first-innings runs are going to be crucial again.”We’ve now got an opportunity to keep winning. That’s been my message to the boys, don’t worry about 5-0 at this stage.”You’ve got to win this one first,” Smith said.
