Shane Watson believes claims the strength of Australia's bowling attack is aiding his performance at the World Cup.
The 29-year-old opening batsman has recorded impressive knocks of 79 and 62 in the wins over Zimbabwe and New Zealand.
And the Queenslander, who also bowls medium-pace, has hailed Australia's fast bowling trio of Shaun Tait, Brett Lee and Mitchell Johnson for leading the way for the champions.
"We are in a very good place at the moment," said Watson, who is gearing for Sunday's match against Kenya.
"It definitely makes my job as a bowler a fair bit easier as well with those guys bowling as beautifully as they are at the moment."
Watson is also enjoying the challenge of opening for Australia, a position recently occupied by now retired fellow Queenslander Matthew Hayden.
"I love opening the batting. It does suit me and my personality now," he added.
"And my bowling workload's been continually well managed, I've been able to get through 18 months now.
"I like being able to set the tone of the inning. For me, when I'm opening I've got the freedom in my mind to be able to go out there and back myself."
