Former India speedster Javagal Srinath on Sunday said that on sub-continental wickets, both spinners and pacers can flourish if they possess special skills and each side will have to play to its strength if it wants to lift the World Cup starting from February 19.

"Playing with spinners in sub-continent pitches is conducive for any team but spinners will have to have special skills to do well here. What is important is playing to your strength. If you have a good fast bowling unit you should play with it," said Srinath at a press conference of Gatorade during the innings break of India-Australia warm-up game.

Srinath said that some of the teams have quality fast bowlers in their side, who can be successful on Indian tracks.

"India, Australia and South Africa have good fast bowlers who can be succeed in these conditions. England too have few very good fast bowlers," he said.

Stating that India have a good fast bowling attack, Srinath heaped special praise on Zaheer Khan and Ashish Nehra.

"I have tremendous faith in Zaheer's abilities. Since 2003 World Cup, Ashish Nehra too has developed and has gathered lot of experience in the last seven years. India have got a very good fast bowling unit," he said.
