Test coach pleased

Tuesday, December 24, 2013

MELBOURNE - Australian bowling coach Craig McDermott has praised his attack as the best in Test cricket.

McDermott expects no changes for the Boxing Day Test to the quartet that has bowled so well in this Ashes series.

Paceman Ryan Harris continues to nurse a sore knee, but McDermott is confident he will be right for Melbourne. Rain forced Australia to train indoors yesterday morning.

Harris has combined superbly with fellow quicks Mitch Johnson and Peter Siddle and off-spinner Nathan Lyon to play a key role in Australia's 3-0 Ashes series lead.

"They've all performed as a unit fantastically well," McDermott said.
