Ricky Ponting, Australia’s batting coach, has declared that Australia's World Cup chances will be defined by how well Aaron Finch's team use spin bowling and also bat against it. Australia’s past success was underpinned largely by Starc's furiously fast, hyper-aggressive bowling, with only a namesake spinner in Xavier Doherty, who played only one match in the entire tournament. However, this time around, Adam Zampa and Nathan Lyon loom as key components of the team, while Ponting also pointed out that the proliferation of spin bowlers among the world's leading teams in the past three years have also raised the emphasis on playing spin bowling adroitly. "The thing that will define Australia's success in the World Cup is, one, how well they bowl spin and, two, how well they play it," Ponting said. “With Zampa bowling well now, Nathan Lyon's obviously in the squad and Glenn Maxwell's done a good job with the ball whenever he's played.”
