Australia batsman Steve Smith has responded to former Australia captain Ian Chappell's claims that he was trying to 'white ant' or undermine Tim Paine during the second Test against Pakistan.

Smith captained the team before losing the position in the aftermath of the ball-tampering scandal last year. Chappell said the batting mainstay should not be as involved in field placements as he seemed to be on Monday when Australia wrapped the 2-0 series triumph.
 
"I only try and help Tim as much as I can. He's doing a terrific job, but I give him suggestions and things like that," Smith said.
