Colombo: Pat Cummins fired the first salvo ahead of Australia's opening Super Eights clash against India, saying his side would seek to exploit India's weakness against the short-pitched delivery.
India and Australia both came away with 100% records from Groups A and B respectively in the ICC World Twenty20 2012, and will lock horns at the R Premadasa Stadium on Friday night.
"A few of them aren't too fond of the short ball," said Cummins, 19, after a training session at the P Sara Oval on Tuesday afternoon. "We will try and ruffle a few feathers. You know, (Suresh) Raina and (Gautam) Gambhir and a few of those guys, they are never comfortable with the short ball and we are probably going to dig in a couple of them. Hopefully, that pays off."
