For us, it is playing to our strengths. Every team in the World Cup has got their strengths. We aren’t too much about opposition’s game style. That’s where we get distracted from what we are really good at,” ICC quoted Carey, as saying.”So for us, it’s building on our success in the last few months. David [Warner] and Steve [Smith] come back in. Quality players. Aaron Finch is in really good form. Our quicks [are in good form as well]. We got a lot of exciting players,” he added.Other than having ‘exciting players’, Carey feels confident going in the premier tournament along with the former World Cup winners, Ricky Ponting (Assistant coach) and Brad Haddin (fielding coach), who will be in their support staff.”We’ve got a lot of knowledge. Brad Haddin played in the last World Cup, we’ve got Ricky Ponting coming in, we’ve got a number of players who played in that last World Cup,” he said.”We’ve got lots of knowledge around the group of guys to access. When we get into it, that’s when the high-pressure [experience] comes into it,” Carey added.Australia will face Afghanistan in their first World Cup 2019 clash on June 1.advertisementAlso Read | Stand by: Official 2019 ICC World Cup song releasedAlso Read | World Cup 2019 winners to earn USD 4 millionFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
