Melbourne, Apr 26 (ANI): Fast bowler Brett Lee is hoping to become part of the Australian attack in the World Twenty20, and said that word is already out on the streets of St Lucia that a menacing pace arsenal could be about to take the field.

Captain Michael Clarke said the line-ups for his side’s two Group A matches against Pakistan on May 2 in St Lucia and Bangladesh on May 5 in Barbados will be based on the conditions.

“It is possible they (four quicks) could all play. It’s about adapting to conditions,” The Age quoted him, as saying.

Lee said he’d jump at the chance to partner Dirk Nannes, Shaun Tait and Mitchell Johnson.

“I hope so. I’m not here to carry the drinks. We’ve got four guys who can bowl over 150 clicks, which is a bit like the 1980s West Indies set-up,” Lee said.

“We’re happy about that and we’re hoping to use that to our advantage. Even being stopped in the street now, hearing the locals saying that you’ve got four blokes who can bowl over 150 clicks,” he said.

“The word’s travelling about look at this cartel of fast bowlers,” Lee said.

Australia plays warm-up games on Tuesday against Zimbabwe and two days later against Windward XI. (ANI)
