Senior Australian batsman Steve Smith, who is struggling with an elbow injury, says Test cricket is his top priority and is ready to opt out of the T20 World Cup in an attempt to maintain fitness for the Ashes series against England. Thirty-two-year-old Smith withdrew from the limited-overs tour of the West Indies with an elbow injury.
Smith told ‘Cricket dot com’, ‘It’s World Cup time and I’m on the road to getting fit right now. Slowly but surely I am recovering. Due to coronary artery disease, the T20 World Cup will now take place in the UAE and Oman from October 17 to November 14 in India. The Ashes series will be played from December 8.

Smith said, ‘I want to play the World Cup, but in my view Test cricket is the highest. I don’t want to miss the Ashes and repeat my success in it. “I am ready for the World Cup, but I am not prepared for that,” he said.
Let us tell you that Smith, caught up in ball tampering in South Africa, made a big comeback to Test cricket after a one-year ban. He performed brilliantly in four Tests of the Ashes against England, scoring 774 runs at 110.57, including 2 centuries.
