Australia could consider playing two left-arm quicks against Pakistan on Wednesday with Jason Behrendorff a chance to come into the side.
Australia's coach Justin Langer defended Nathan Coulter-Nile following his performance against India, but revealed he considered bringing in Behrendorff at The Oval.
Coulter-Nile scored a match-turning 92 against the West Indies last week, but as Australia's third quick has taken just one wicket for 169 runs across three games.
It represents a bigger issue in the side, with the drop off after Pat Cummins and Mitchell Starc notable following a lack of early wickets in the loss to India.
"We thought about it (playing two left-arms on Sunday), actually, the match ups against India," Langer said.
"But we just felt with Coults, after his man-of-the-match performance and what he gives us as an all-round package we went with him.
"But I can see (playing Starc and Behrendorff together in the tournament), I can definitely see that. I know that Pakistan play two left armers.
"So Jason was close (to playing) but Coults got the nod and I thought he did a good job."
Langer has also previously indicated he could rotate his bowlers through this period of the Cup, with Australia in the middle of their heaviest part of the schedule.
"We knew it was going to be a really tough four games in nine days," Langer said.
"In perfect world, you just have the best team to play every game when you possibly can.
"It might be with the match ups, it might be the left-armers. We'll have a look at Pakistan."
Australia made the controversial call to twice overlook regular quick Josh Hazlewood from the squad on his return from injury, both initially and when Jhye Richardson (shoulder) was withdrawn.
Meanwhile, the team travelled to their nearby base at Bristol on Monday and trained at the match ground in Taunton for the first time on Tuesday.
Australia have never played an international on the oval before, although Langer spent the latter years of his career with it as his home for Somerset.
The venue has short straight boundaries much like Bristol, potentially lending itself to another high-scoring game.
The Aussies left themselves 11-an-over to get from the final 15 against India, and Langer said he was confident in sticking with a similar approach.
"If you look at (India), they were 0/40 after 10. We were 48 after 10. Even at the 38-over mark we still had the same amount of runs.
"So I'm not worried about game style, no way.
"We just lost three wickets in five balls at a stage were they got 113 in the last ten. At The Oval you can get 100 in the last 10 easy.
"The boys will do it differently we're not saying to preserve wickets means you've got to block. Players have different styles.
"But the philosophy is you can't make runs from the changeroom."
