Australia wary of Windies' spin duo of Narine, Badree ahead of T20 WC semifinal clash

Australian captain George Bailey has said they won't be taking the challenge posed by West Indies' spinners Sunil Narine and Samuel Badree lightly during their Twenty20 World Cup semifinal showdown on Friday.

"They have a quality spinner in Narine and certainly not be underestimated," Sports24 quoted Bailey, as saying.

"I think (Samuel) Badree has had some good success at the top bowling some leg-spin as well," he added.

Bailey also claimed dismissing explosive opening batsman Chris Gayle early during their Twenty20 World Cup semifinal clash on Friday would be like winning half the battle.

Australia has never won the Twenty20 World Cup and Bailey's men would be determined to reach their second final in succession at the mega tournament by stopping the boys from the Caribbeans. (ANI)
