Australia wicket-keeper Alex Carey has been of the opinion that Australia’s bench strength could give them an edge over others in the World Cup. After a string of ODI series losses, a T20I series win against India, and a cut-throat ODI series leveled at 2-2 will give them a lot of confidence.

“As members of the Australian team, we have been working very hard in the last 12 to 18 months. Some success has started to come our way. I am confident we will do really well with the squad we take to the World Cup. Our bench strength makes us serious contenders for the World Cup,” Alex Carey said in pre-match press conference, reported TOI.
“Those ( Steve Smith, David Warner and Mitchell Starc ) are definitely some big names that might come back into the line. The guys that are in the side are performing well, so it’s only healthy for Australian cricket that the guys in the side are playing well,” Carey added.
“There has been a fair bit of media analysis about how we have played spin in the past. But, we have worked really hard on this aspect. It’s hugely satisfying to see some reward in that regard but it’s no surprise as the guys are doing so much hard work,” reflected Carey.
