The Tim Paine-led, which packed Northern Knights for a paltry 92 in their 86-run victory on Tuesday - their third win in two matches, will start as favourites when they take on the winless Barbados Tridents. Wright said that bowling will be key.
     
"Bowling has been our strength and we showed that in our last game. In our first match (which they lost to KXIP) here we had an off game with the ball but we bounced back against the Cape Cobras and against the Northern Knights," Wright told reporters here.
     
Wright also said that new-ball bowlers Ben Hilfenhaus and Doug Bollinger have given teeth to the attack.
     
"They are the two senior bowlers in our team and they have had a lot of success over here playing in the IPL and playing for Australia. They are the leading wicket-takers in our team…we are very happy with our bowling lineup. We have also got Xavier Doherty who has played a lot of cricket internationally and in India as well. At the moment I hope that most teams around are fearing our bowling attack," he said.
        
Asked if there would be pressure on the team in Sunday's game as they need a win to advance to the next level, he said, "In Twenty20 cricket there is always pressure. We have to make sure that we continue to play very good cricket allround. Our batting and bowling is going particularly well and our fielding has been pretty good as well. At the moment we have played some good cricket and we are going to continue that."
     
Wright also said the team's batting was going well. "In terms of our batting against their (Tridents) bowling, I think our batting is going well. I think Aiden Blizzard and Shoaib Malik are playing particularly well.
     
We probably need better starts. I have been critical of the starts. We have lacked them. One of our openers has been able to get good starts but I would like to see both of them doing well in this game," Wright added.
