India is likelyy to field 'five specialist bowlers' as indicated by the Indian captain Dhoni, a move which may restrict the Australian batsmen, but at the same time denudes India of its otherwise long batting line. The same combination however worked against England in the earlier group matche, which India won. However, the Australian batsman Michael Hussey on Wednesday said the team is chalking out an appropriate strategy to cope with the variety of spinners Indians are depending on.
As for the Aussies, they have all rounder Shane Watson, who has not only batted well so far but has been a good boweler too. However, Austalian captain Bailey does not want to entirely depend on watson. The opening pair of Watson and Warner are Aussies strength.
The opposing squads are as under:
GJ Bailey*, SR Watson, DT Christian, PJ Cummins, XJ Doherty, BW Hilfenhaus, GB Hogg, DJ Hussey, MEK Hussey, CJ McKay, GJ Maxwell, MA Starc, MS Wade†, DA Warner, CL White
MS Dhoni*†, G Gambhir, R Ashwin, L Balaji, PP Chawla, AB Dinda, Harbhajan Singh, Z Khan, V Kohli, IK Pathan, SK Raina, V Sehwag, RG Sharma, MK Tiwary, Yuvraj Singh
The match is between two cricket giants, both in good form and playing aggressively so far. The match will be interesting to watch. Let us see which startegy the Aussies adopt as hinted by Hussey to counter the Indian five bowlers combination
