Sydney, Apr 25 (ANI): Pacer Brett Lee arrived with the Australian squad arrived in St Lucia for the T20 World Cup anxious to prove himself in the warm-up matches.

Australia play warm-up games in St Lucia against Zimbabwe on April 27 and against Windward Islands on April 29.

Australia's opponents in Group A are world champions Pakistan on May 2 in St Lucia and Bangladesh in Barbados on May 5, The Sydney Morning Herald reports.

Lee has been handed a lifeline by coach Tim Nielsen, who said Australia will consider playing a four-man pace attack against Bangladesh on the bouncy Barbados pitch.

Battling a serious elbow problem and more recently a fractured thumb, which cut short his Indian Premier League stint, Lee could suddenly be back in the reckoning to bowl alongside fellow pacers Shaun Tait, Dirk Nannes and Mitchell Johnson.

"Our past experience there shows the ball does carry and bounce a bit," Nielsen told Cricinfo.

"If it's fizzing through, we'll certainly consider four quicks, no doubt, as long as they're all bowling well," he said. (ANI)
