Hobart, Dec 21(ANI): Pakistan skipper Mohammad Yousuf reckons that his bowling attack will play a crucial role in the upcoming three-Test series against Australia.

Yousuf described his bowlers as the strength of the team after the three-day warm-up match against Tasmania.

He also said that leg-spinner Danish Kaneria, who took seven wickets in Pakistan's last Test match against New Zealand at Napier, will play an important part on some of the turning tracks which will be offered in Australia, while fast bowler Mohammad Sami's return will bolster the fast bowling department.

Sami will supplement the attack featuring Umar Gul, Mohammad Asif, Mohammad Aamer and Abdur Rauf.

"The feeling one had some years ago that beating Australia in Australia is impossible is no longer there among our players. I think we have a bowling attack that is capable of causing problems for Australia and they are now beatable," The News quoted Yousuf, as saying.

"Chris Gayle's men were impressive here and stretched the home side on a number of occasions during the Tests. Benn's success as a spinner is also a good omen for us because Kaneria is firing well," he added. (ANI)
