Ranchi: Rattled by Mohammad Shami's three-wicket burst with the new ball in the abandoned fourth ODI, Australian skipper George Bailey has instructed his batsmen to watch out for the rookie Indian pacer in the remaining games of the ongoing seven-match series.

Taken aback by Shami's pace and swing, Bailey said: "Obviously Shami bowled very well. He's someone we haven't seen in the series and he was a little bit quicker than what we expected. He certainly got movement off the seam," Bailey told reporters after the fourth one-dayer at the JSCA Stadium yesterday.

"That's something to be pretty aware of for the rest of the series. That's obviously what's going to be coming at us," he said.
