The two-day practice match between the Australians and the BCB XI was called off after the Fatullah Cricket Stadium was deemed "not up to the mark" by the touring side.
"I think Usman's going to be a really big player for us this summer", Smith told local media. "I am just going to Bangladesh for two Test matches".

Joshi was named as the spin bowling coach of Bangladesh ahead of their one-off Test against India in Hyderabad earlier this year. "Hopefully we can come with the thing we learned from India and bring that into the game here". "So we are seeing it as a big challenge", Smith said in his first press conference in Dhaka since arriving here late on Friday amid tight security.More news: League looking into claim Lakers tampered with George

Smith led his side from the front scoring three centuries to become the highest run-getter in the series with 499 runs at an average of 71.28.
While the Ponting-led side had only seven months earlier been dethroned in England, losing their first Ashes series in almost two decades, the touring party still boasted a formidable collection of talent including the likes of Matthew Hayden, Shane Warne, Adam Gilchrist, Brett Lee, Jason Gillespie, Stuart MacGill and a young Clarke. "Sometimes, shorter the match, the more exciting Test match it is in a way", he said. "We are confident everything will go according to our plan", he said.
Australia decided against a warm-up match during their last tour of Bangladesh and were caught off guard by the hosts, narrowly scraping a win after a shock start.
Australia is fourth in ICC test rankings and second behind South Africa in the ODI format.
Lehmann, who was beginning his seventh and final county stint with Yorkshire while Australia played that series in Bangladesh, is aware the current crop of players don't yet inspire the same kind of fear his former teammates did.
