Sydney, Feb 10(ANI): Former Australian wicketkeeper Ian Healy believes that off-spinner Jason Krejza could be the ’surprise factor’ in Australia’s World Cup defence.

Krejza was included in the 15-man Australian squad in place of injured Nathan Hauritz.

“Krejza should do the job. Hopefully he gets the sense Australia is ready to settle on a spinner. They’ve been through 10 or 11 and at some stage they’ll settle on someone,” the Sydney Morning Herald quoted Healy, as saying.

“I think he’s got something to offer. He’s got a nice presence about him, he has a crack and he’s not bad with the bat,” he added.

The 28-year-old had made his ODI debut against England in the seventh match in Perth on Sunday.

He finished with match figures of 2-53 from nine overs. (ANI)
