Englands approach with the Spinners ?
The last time the England Cricket Team visited India, the Joe Root-led squad could not even last two days. They arrived at Ahmedabad in one and a half days. However, this England team is different.
They are confident in using sweeps, reverse sweeps, scoops, and reverse scoops to take on Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, and Axar Patel respectively. And they’ll fight.
But can Indian batters fight on turners too?
On the other hand, Indian batters have a bad record playing under the spin bowling with the english.
India managed only 145 runs on a rank-turner Ahmedabad pitch in 2021, with Rohit Sharma scoring 66.
Similarly, Rohit Sharma scored a century on the Nagpur turner in the IND vs AUS series, but India needed Axar Patel and Ravindra Jadeja to score half-centuries each.
Hence, India has a problem. The current set of players are not as good spin players as Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman, Rahul Dravid, or Virender Sehwag were.
However, given India’s recent record on seam-friendly wickets, that appears to be the best option. However, this is doubtful. The remaining grass on the pitch will be highly rolled, and fractures are likely to form. India will likely to go with spin on this batting pitch.
