Windies bowlers have a tough task

india Updated: Mar 28, 2014 01:15 IST

Australia and West Indies lock horns in a very crucial game and the scenario is such that both teams will have to go all out for a win. An Australia win will surely keep their hopes alive for a berth in the semifinal.

The Australian batting was exemplary in the match against Pakistan and Glen Maxwell was outstanding. It was one of the cleanest hitting of the ball that I have seen in recent times. Australia should have won but the lower order gave it away to the Pakistan bowling attack. Although the Australian pace battery is very strong but once again their success will depend on spin. They might have to add one more spinner in that squad against West Indies.

The Australian top-four is one of the best suited for T20 format and this will put a huge pressure on West Indies bowling.

On the other hand, if the West Indies don't win, they will be mere spectators in the group as it will turn out to be a three-way race between India, Pakistan and Australia for the top two place in the group.
