Arthur says Oz has ' best all-round bowling attack in world cricket'

London, June 21 (ANI): Australian cricket coach Mickey Arthur has said that he believed that his team has best all-round bowling attack in world cricket.

The South African coach was speaking ahead of the much-anticipated five-Test Ashes series with England, which starts on July 10 at Trent Bridge, The Sun reports.

Claiming that England has cracked under pressure in the past, Arthur said that he is confident that his stable of bowlers is well-placed to expose the English frailty, adding that even though England is a good cricket side, it is yet to be seen how they handle pressure for a sustained period of time.

According to Arthur, Australia can win the Ashes as they have the world's best bowling attack at their disposal.

However, the report said that England is a hot favourite to triumph this summer with Australia's build-up bordering on the farcical, with four players dropped for failing to do their homework on the March tour to India, and batsman David Warner currently being suspended after punching England's Joe Root in a nightclub.

But, Arthur has viewed the situation differently, saying that even if a player is injured, he is replaced by another player who can just be effective, which he added is a massive boost for the Australian team.

Arthur further said that the team would be very powerful if they play for each other and the urn, adding that they have a good chance in the Ashes if the batsmen can score enough runs as he is already confident that they will be able to get 20 wickets. (ANI)
