Impressed by the nagging discipline shown by the pacemen in their final warm-up
game against the West Indies, Indian captain Rahul Dravid said it
had given them an idea about their bowling attack for the World Cup matches.He
said even though the pitches in the Caribbean were expected to suit the spinners,
the medium-pacers too could reap rich rewards if they bowl in right areas.
"Seamers can be very dangerous as well. We now pretty
much have an idea of whom to go with at least in the early part of the tournament,"
Dravid said after thrashing the West Indies by nine wickets in their final warm-up
match at Trelawny Stadium here on Friday.
Dravid also singled out Ajit Agarkar and Zaheer Khan
for for praise for scything through the home line up.
"Ajit (Agarkar) and Zaheer (Khan) have just continued
where they had left off at home. Irfan (Pathan) got the new ball in the previous
game and bowled in one spell here. He is showing improvement so that's good.
"But I thought Munaf was exceptional. He bowled in superb
areas and a superb line," he said.
"Some of the (West Indian) batting wasn't good but it
was more brought about by some good tight bowling. We had some early morning
dew and conditions which assisted us but it sort of lasted for about 10-12 overs.
But we did most of the damage after that," Dravid said.
