Chennai: Fast bowler Doug Bollinger on Sunday said that Chennai Super Kings has the right combination of both pace and spin to defend its Indian Premier League title.

"Albie Morkel has done a really good job (as a pacer). Our spinners Jackie (Shadab Jakati) and R Ashwin have been fantastic. So I don't think we feel that much pressure. We won two back-to-back IPL editions. I think we are pretty relaxed going into the fifth season and have plenty of options. We have good spinners in our ranks," Bollinger said.

"We are having a great time. The guys have been playing cricket for six-seven months now. So we all know what to do. We just want to win on Wednesday (against Mumbai Indians in the opener)," the left-arm Australian pacer said.

Bollinger said it's great to have fellow fast bowler and countrymate Ben Hilfenhaus in the side.

"He is bowling really well for Australia. Good luck to him. It is great to have a bowler like him in your team. He was little bit injured last year. He has come back and bowled really well. He is swinging the ball well. It would be good to see how he goes," he said.

Asked about how he intends to cope up with the slow nature of the Chepauk strip, Bollinger replied, "You just got to accommodate yourself to that. The way the wicket now looks it is very good for fast bowlers. A little bit of grass and hopefully that grass will help the ball to come through quick."

"It's just a change we have to go through. We are all good bowlers and know what to do. Hopefully, it swings for me and spins for Ashwin," he said.
