Posted By: Pti

Ahmedabad, Feb 18 (PTI) Returning after a 15-month layoff from cricket due to injury, Australian speedster BrettLee today said that depending on pace attack on slow pitchesof the sub-continent would not be a problem for his teamduring the ICC World Cup 2011.

"For pace bowling you got to get the ball in the rightspot. I think that the way we bowled in the Champions Trophy,with lot of pace bowlers, we actually won that competition.

Specially playing slow wickets like in Delhi, it tends to suitour pace attack," Lee told mediapersons here.

"I don''t see any problem with the pace side which wehave got and playing at the slow wickets. As at the end of theday the ball is still coming at 150 kmph through the air," thepacer who is excited to be back in the team, said.

Lee was commenting on Australian team depending on paceattack for the world cup in the sub continent where thepitches are slow and tend to favour the spinners.

"Pitch is massive part of the equation. But if you gotbowler like Shaun Tate bowling around 160 kmph at thebatsmen''s toes, it does not matter where you are playing. Theball is still going to hit the batsmen on the full," he said.

He said that Australia was are trying to bowl in a teamenvironment, where each bowler backs each other and with3-4 spinners they had a very good bowling attack. (More) PTIPB PD DK
