Australia lacks a world class spinner, says Ian Chappell


  • As days are progressing, the Australian pace bowlers are all gearing up to face a huge daunting Indian batting line up in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup tournament of 2015 in the semi final match. The former Australian captain Ian Chappell believes that the home attack of the baggy greens is not yet completely balanced as they are lacking a world class spinner.

    He thinks that though it is a pretty good attacking side, still it is not completely balanced because he believes that they are facing the lack of a world class spin bowler and that is the only weakness he can see in the line up so far, other than which he thinks, it is a good combination because they can swing the ball quite well, Ian Chappell said at a video show.

    Even the Pakistan skipper Misbah ul Haq has agreed to place his money on Team India to prevail over the host nation Australia as he believes the home team will be struggling for and against the formidable spin options at the Sydney Cricket Ground stadium which is traditionally helpful to the slower bowlers.

    While playing in Sydney, the Australians will be missing a quality spinner. That could be the difference, because the spinners have had a lot of success in the SCG and Imran Tahir did well the other day. So that could be a problem for Australia, said the 40 year old Misbah ul Haq, whose One Day career ended after the quarter final loss against Australia.

    He thought that he did a pretty nice job. He also thinks that he has got a lot of potential; he even thinks that Pat Cummins has got a lot of potential in him as well. Cummins has probably got more upside because he is a bit quicker but right at the moment he thinks that Josh Hazlewood is bowling pretty well and deserves his place in the squad, said the cricketer turned expert Misbah.
