England last won an Ashes on Australian soil in 2010-2011 but only four players from that tour remain in the current side.
Former skipper Alastair Cook, James Anderson, Stuart Broad and Steven
Finn were the players involved in that victorious squad while the
current tour party will see a host of rookie members.
Mark Stoneman, who is likely to open the batting with Cook, has only
played in three Tests while middle-order batsmen Dawid Malan and James
Vince have only 12 Test caps between them.
Smith told BBC's Stumped podcast: "Dawid Malan and other guys have
come in and played, I'm not entirely sure what order they will go with.
Mark Stoneman will probably be at the top.
"They do have inexperienced players coming to Australia - hopefully
they won't be equipped for the fast and bouncy tracks compared to
England and we can exploit them a little bit.
"With regards to their batting, Alastair Cook and Joe Root are their two big players that we need to keep quiet."
Smith also spoke about England's experienced opening bowling duo of
James Anderson and Stuart Broad, saying the home team will need to keep
the pair out in the field for as long as possible.
Seamer Chris Woakes is still working his way back to full fitness
while former part-timer Moeen Ali continues be England's first-choice
"James Anderson and Stuart Broad are experienced - they have been here a few times so they know what to expect," said Smith.
"We need to get those guys bowling a lot of overs - if we do that, hopefully we'll have some success."
The first of five Ashes Test gets underway in Brisbane on 23 November.
