Thomson blasts Australian bowling attack

MELBOURNE: Stating that the Australian bowling stock is no better than a “third-grade club side,” legendary fast bowler Jeff Thomson said Ricky Ponting’s men will struggle during the Test tour of South Africa.

With Australia’s fast bowling options at crisis point following pacer Stuart Clark’s injury setback, Thomson feels that it would be tough for Ponting’s men to make an impact when they face South Africa later this month.

“From what I saw of the Australian attack the other day, what they bowled was absolute crap. Every one of them was terrible,” he said. — PTI
