Hauritz gets Afridi's backing

Nathan Hauritz found an unlikely a friendly association in Pakistan skipper Shahid Afridi, who said dropping the spinner could prove costly for Australia. Australia play their opening match of the World Twenty20 against defending champions Pakistan on Sunday. Hauritz did not take a wicket in two practice games at Beausejour Cricket Ground, where the pitch is slow and favourable to turn, and looks likely to miss out for the crucial match against Afridi's team.

The chairman of selectors Andrew Hilditch also indicated that all-rounder Steve Smith and part time bowlers Michael Clarke and David Hussey could give the team with adequate cover. He said that he think Australia should go with their regular spinners on this track, it's not easy to bowl spin, and they should be very focused.

He said he is not saying it's totally a spinning track, if they have got a good experienced spinner they know how to bowl and where to bowl. He think Hauritz been doing well for the last couple of months and thinks on this type of track he will be very difficult for the opposition.Pakistan will field at least two spinners and two part timers while Bangladesh, the other team in Australia's group, will also rely on spinners to win through to the super eight stage.
