Barbados (West Indies), May 7 (ANI): Australian cricket captain Michael Clarke has said that he will be unleashing his pace battery on the Indians on the bouncy Kensington Oval pitch here in the World Twenty20 Super Eights match on Friday here, even as left-arm fast bowler Mitchell Johnson has probably ruled himself out with an elbow infection.

But skipper Michael Clarke has said that Australia has the required firepower to make life difficult for India's batsmen on the bouncy Kensington Oval pitch.

Australia will take on India on Friday and Sri Lanka on Sunday in Barbados. On Tuesday, they face hosts West Indies in St Lucia in a bid to progress to the semi-finals, the Sydney Morning Herald reports.

Clarke was licking his lips ahead of the opportunity to unleash his quick bowlers on India.

"These conditions are really going to help our fast bowlers. There was a lot of pace and bounce in that wicket," SMH quoted Clarke, as saying.

"I don't think I'll have too much of a say. Our fast bowlers will bowl as much short stuff as they like," he added.

"We cop it in the nets so we'll definitely see it in the game. We've got some pace up our sleeve and I'm sure in these conditions we'll be able to use it," he said further. (ANI)
