Melbourne: Ex-Australia opener and coach Geoff Marsh has said Australia's thorough preparation ahead of the ICC World Cup will help avoid a repeat of the shock exit his side suffered in 1992.
Australia failed to progress past the group stage the last time the World Cup was held in Australia 23 years ago. But Marsh, who has been embedded with the squad since Friday, said the outfit won't suffer the same problems.
"They've done a lot of homework and when you know that, you head into a tournament feeling very good about yourself and I think this team is. The expectations are really high. But the planning has started a long time ago and they've talked about it," Marsh said.
