Tait more comfortable about completing ODI overs

Perth: Australian fast bowler Shaun Tait is now more keen than before to complete his quota of ten overs in a one-day international.

In the recent past, his haywire bowling action has only permitted him the shortest of spells, but he felt so comfortable after recovering from a gluteal strain that he wanted to complete his quota of overs in Sydney, and returned respectable figures of 2-59 against England.

``I got through ten overs and I`ve pulled up pretty good. The last couple of injuries or niggles I`ve had have surprised me a little but my body`s actually feeling pretty good,`` the Sydney Morning Herald quoted him, as saying.

Tait now appears set to play a key role, as the only remaining member of the 2007 attack. ``It`s pretty good timing to win the series after the summer we`ve had, but I think it`s a momentum thing and it`s probably perfect timing for the World Cup,`` Tait said.
