Melbourne, July 31 Australia batsman Matthew Wade expects India's pacemen to make use of the short ball when they tour Down Under but says none will be as effective as New Zealand's Neil Wagner with the bouncer. Wade was left battered and bruised after shortpitched assaults by Wagner when New Zealand toured in the last home summer and paid tribute to the fiery leftarmer. "I don't think anyone in the game has bowled bouncers the way he bowled and been so consistent, and not gotten scored off while also picking up wickets," Wade told Cricket Australia's website ( "I think we'll see it a bit (from India) but I don't think it will be as effective as Wagner. He's done it for a long time now. "To be honest, I've never faced a bowler who is so accurate at bowling bouncers." Though Wagner made his mark with 17 wickets, including multiple dismissals of Australia's best batsmen Steve Smith, David Warner and Marnus Labuschagne, Tim Paine's side dominated the Black Caps.
