Steven Smith & Co. are now struggling with their batting in nearly format of the game.

The Australians are now 2-0 down in the five-match series in India, and have lost their past 10 away matches on the trot - their worst-ever away losing streak - with a visibly frustrated captain Steve Smith on Thursday calling out too many batting collapses from his side. Needing less than 6 an over to win the Kolkata ODI and with skipper Steven Smith at the crease, Australia were in a decent position when the battling faltered again, triggering a collapse which resulted in their 50-run defeat. Bevan has coached a club in the Sydney Premier Cricket for easts, though he has not been involved in a coaching role for any major team. His reply to the message was, "Exactly what this team needs buddy".

Bevan played 232 ODIs with his batting average of 53.58.

On Saturday, Bevan sent out a tweet saying simply: "Would love to be considered for the role of ODI batting coach - where do I apply?"

Addressing the concern of batting collapses, he said, "It's happening a bit too often for my liking, to be honest with you, in all forms of cricket".

The biggest reason for this poor show has been the frequent batting collapses and with the exception of David Warner and Steve Smith, all other batsmen have struggled for any consistency. "Because we're having too many collapses and it's not good enough.", Smith concluded.

After the recent drubbing at the hands of India, Bevan could not help himself and took to social media to put his hand up for assisting the current lot of batsmen in ODIs at least. The offer is hard to ignore under circumstances.
