George Bailey said the wealth of talent available in the Australian ranks in the batting and bowling department going into the ICC World T20 2014. With their tremendous form coming into the tournament, Australia start as one of the favourites to win the World T20.

 

According to the skipper, Australia lacked adequate bowling options in the 2012 edition of World T20 and in the presence of Watson and other part-timers, the weak area will be covered up for.

 

“It’s something that I feel is the one area where we were probably a little bit weak on in the last World Cup. We just didn’t have the extra bowlers who could bust out one or two-over spells. In Bangladesh, we’ve got Cameron White who can bowl a few overs. Glenn Maxwell and Aaron Finch can bowl, as can Brad Hodge. It just gives you so many options and that’s always a handy thing to have,” Bailey added.
