Nagpur: Australia captain Ricky Ponting said on Friday if his pace battery continues to perform well, the team can overcome any oppostion in the World Cup.
Australian fast bowlers Mitchell Johnson and Shaun Tait wrecked the New Zealand batting as the four-time world champions cruised to a seven wicket victory in Jamtha here.
"It was a good game for us today. New Zealand are a very good One-day side. We said right at the start of the tournament, if our fast bowlers bowl as well as they can, it does not matter who we play. They could have actually been better with the new ball. The fact that they took wickets early meant I did not have to fall back on Shane Watson through the day," said Ponting.
