Melbourne, Feb 9 (UNI) Australian pace spearhead Brett Lee today claimed that the new look Indian team was missing the expierence of former captains Sourav Ganguly and Rahul Dravid in the ongoing CB series.
''It's always tougher for younger guys to come through immediately. (Rahul) Dravid and (Sourav) Ganguly played a lot of cricket this summer and were there since the start. The new guys would take some time to find their feet,'' Lee said.''Though they are quality players, they have their work cut out.'' Referring to the match against India tomorrow, Lee singled out the Australian bowling as the key factor.
''We are bowling collectively good,'' he said. ''I took a fiver in Brisbane, Nathan (Bracken) did it in Sydney. Johnson is proving to be a good back up. (James) Hopes, (Brad) Hogg, (Andrew) Symonds and (Michael) Clarke, we think we have good options in this area.'' The 32-year-old also said he stood as good a chance of picking wickets in one-dayers as in Tests.
''In ODIs, the batsmen look to score and it generally means more chances of picking up wickets. In Tests, you got to be more patient,'' he said, adding, ''Variations is the key word. You bowl slower, bouncer, seam, try new things basically all the time.'' UNI XC AB RKM RS1908
