Pace on slow pitches no problem for Aus

Ahmedabad: Returning after a 15-month lay off from cricket due to injury, Australian speedster Brett Lee on Friday said that depending on pace attack on slow pitches of the sub-continent would not be a problem for his team during the ICC World Cup 2011.

"For pace bowling you got to get the ball in the right spot. 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 suit our pace attack," Lee told mediapersons here.

"I don`t see any problem with the pace side which we have got and playing at the slow wickets. As at the end of the day the ball is still coming at 150 kmph through the air," the pacer who is excited to be back in the team, said.

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

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

He said that Australia was are trying to bowl in a team environment, where each bowler backs each other and with 3-4 spinners they had a very good bowling attack.
