We often associate Australia with wickets that aid fast bowlers. It will not be any different this time around in the World Cup. But, there is no reason why a spinner cannot turn out to be a game changer in the World Cup. ODIs are often won by the team that plays the middle overs (20- 35) better. This is when the spinners are expected to be in operation. What works to a spinners favour Down Under is the large outfields and the bounce the tracks provide. Here is a list of the top 5 bowlers, who could be the game changer for their country in those middle overs:

#1 Xavier Doherty

The left arm orthodox bowler from Tasmania, bowls wicket to wicket. He rarely gives the ball flight and is very flat in his trajectory. He is not someone who is going to run through the batting line ups, but is very frugal in giving away runs. If he can choke the run flow in the middle overs, he would be a perfect complement for the likes of Mitchell Johnson.
