Australia looks to an all pace bowling attack for Boxing Day

10:36 am on 26 December 2008

The Australian cricket coach Tim Nielsen says they could field an all pace bowling attack for the Test match against South Africa starting today in Melbourne.

Spinner Jason Krejza was dropped from the Australian squad following South Africa's six wicket win in the first test at the WACA in Perth, and has been replaced by Nathan Hauritz.

Nielsen says he's been studying the Melbourne pitch and believes an all pace attack could be a good option.
