McDermott hails Oz bowling attack as 'best in world'

Sydney, Dec 23 : Australian bowling coach Craig McDermott has praised his attack as the best in Test cricket, according to reports.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, 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, the report said.

Rain forced Australia to train indoors on Monday morning, the report added.

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, the report further said.

McDermott said that all his bowlers had performed fantastically well, adding that Australia has the best attack in the world at the moment.

He also said that the bowlers were nursing a few aches and pains, but nothing serious, the report mentioned.
