Angry, embarrassed, frustrated, disappointed, upset, hurting. These were the words synonymous with Steven Smiths Australians in the aftermath of defeat to South Africa in Hobart. Another, resilient, is not.Smith cut a bewildered and downtrodden figure as he sorted through the wreckage of a humiliating fifth Test match defeat in succession, the national sides first innings loss at home since the fateful Ashes summer of 2010-11. Clearly angry with the performances of his players, he suggested it may be time for widespread personnel changes.I am embarrassed to be sitting here to be perfectly honest with you, Smith said. Too many times we have lost wickets in clumps, 8 for 30 today, 10 for 85 in the first innings, and you are not winning any games of cricket when are you doing that. And it is happening way too consistently for my liking.We are not being resilient, we are not willing to tough it out and get through tough periods and the longer you spend out there things get easier, albeit the wicket was doing quite a bit and it was hard. But, the boys have got to start being a bit tougher and getting in a grind and getting in a contest and try to build a few partnerships because right now it is not good enough.Asked directly about the tenure of the national team coach Darren Lehmann, who signed a contract extension in August to take him through to 2019, Smith was adamant in his support. I think hes been terrific over a long period of time, he said. Its not his fault were not playing well, its up to us to go out there and do the job. He does everything he can for us in training and preparation.We prepare well, its just at the moment when we get out in the middle were not executing our skills well enough and not handling the pressures of international cricket well enough. As a playing group that has to change, and from my point of view I have absolutely no problem with anything Darren is doing at the moment.Smith was less effusive in his words about the way the selection panel was operating, declining to answer the question of whether he was getting the teams he desired. Its obviously talked about and I do talk to the selectors quite a bit and in the end it is up to them to pick the team that they think best, he said. I have got to back their job and go out there and support our guys and do whatever we can to win cricket matches but obviously were not doing that and it is not working.With the knowledge that Australia are currently mired in the sort of slump that costs careers, Smith admitted that all manner of issues, from selection and schedules to the personnel in and around the team and at Cricket Australia would all be under heavy scrutiny.Yeah, it is not working, Smith said when asked if the time had come to rip up existing plans and start over. So, obviously on the back of five losses there is going to be a lot talked about in regards to selection and things like that. And weve got to start finding a way to turn things around.Whether the ball is seaming or spinning or swinging we dont have an answer at the moment. We are not resilient enough, we are not digging in enough, we are not having the pride in our wicket, were just not being resilient enough and something has got to change. We have got to play a lot better than we have been if we are going to beat any opposition around the world at the moment.Smith agreed that the present batting rut suggested the team had not earned the right to play with the sort of flair and aggression usually associated with Australian cricket. In conditions conducive to bowlers but far from impossible, he said that the players in the team had to think more keenly about their approach.I think that depends on conditions, if the wickets are flat and there is nothing happening fine you can play aggressively and positively, he said. But if there is anything in the wicket: spin, swing, seam, at the moment we are not adapting well enough, we are not willing to grind it out and spend enough time out in the middle to be positive.It comes down to that resilience and having a good defence, at the moment our defence is being challenged and it hasnt been good enough. You can play that positive brand once you get in and things get easier, but we have got to be willing to do the hard yards to be in a position where we can be positive and drive the game.Looking more widely around Australian cricket, Smith said he wanted to see more evidence of hungry batsmen in domestic cricket. Theres some guys there that are scoring some big runs on occasions and then probably not being as consistent as they would like to put their names up there, he said. Thats what I mean when I say no one is really jumping out of the pack and getting big hundreds or three hundreds in a row.At the moment what weve got going on is not working so it might be about getting some younger guys in and getting some experience at this level, you never know, guys might really step up to the plate and step up to the level of international cricket.

Iain Fyfe wont rule out a long-term commitment to the Newcastle Jets after sealing his A-League comeback despite not having played professionally in two years.The 34-year-old centre-back is poised to make his debut for the Jets in Sundays F3 Derby against Central Coast after agreeing to an injury replacement deal on Friday.He has been brought in for Daniel Mullen, who will miss most of the next two months with a knee injury, while captain Nigel Boogaard is also sidelined for six weeks after suffering an ankle injury in last Thursdays loss to Melbourne City.Best known for his time with Sydney FC and Adelaide United, Fyfe hasnt played since winning the South Australian NPL grand final in September with Campbelltown City.But he says he still feels fit enough to contribute and may even play out the season if the opportunity arises.I just see it how Ive always seen my career - especially when you get to your thirties. You play game by game, Fyfe told reporters on Friday.Very clichhe, I know .dddddddddddd.. but if anything comes from that Ill be happy to look into that for sure.Its all confidence.

I just need to get that sharpness back, that match fitness, but thatll come.Fyfe is expected to start in the centre of defence against the Mariners alongside Ben Kantarovski, who has made an early return from a knee injury, and should inject some much-needed experience into a side that hasnt fielded the same back four twice this season.Coach Mark Jones is hopeful the veteran can last at least an hour.As for the prospects of a more permanent deal for Fyfe: If he does well, certainly.
