Ahmedabad, Feb 18 (PTI) Ray Price, the senior most playerin the Zimbabwe team, is hoping to complete a century ofwickets in the One-Day Internationals, before he retires.

The left-arm spinner, who currently has taken 80 ODIwickets, would be leading the Zimbabwe spin attack along withyoung Prosper Utseya and Graeme Cremer.

"I would like to get 100 wickets before I retire. I amgetting old now. But I am still young in my heart," Pricesaid.

He also praised young Utseya and said, "Prosper and Iwork very well together. Just have different lines. He and Ihave played for long and I enjoy bowling with him," theveteran player said.

Price was of the opinion that while playing in India thepressure was on the spinners to perform on slow pitches.

When asked about their first World Cup match againstdefending champions Australia, Price said they were notafraid of the Aussies.

"Australians are highly competitive. We are not afraidof them but we respect them. I never like to make too muchnoise with my mouth. Once I get ball in my hand, I can makesome noise," the senior player said.
