New Delhi, 26/5 (AO Bureau):Team India’s left-arm spinner Axar Patel believes that spin bowlers who can also bat during a long tour of England can work for India in a big way. Axar Patel is part of the Indian team that will play the World Test Championship final against New Zealand in Southampton and five Test matches against England. Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and Washington Sundar are the other spinners. Who will go to England tour. Akshar Patel has realized that India’s strong spin attack is such that it can also bat brilliantly along with bowling. In such a situation, this feature of Team India can prove to be their main weapon in England.
Akshar Patel said in an interview to India TV, “If you look at the spinners of our team, we have Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja and myself. After this, Washington is also beautiful. All the spinners in our team can also bat, which can prove beneficial for us in England. If we have such a batting order where players can contribute up to number 8 or number 9, then you can beat any side. ”
Spinner’s important role in England as well
During this conversation, Akshar Patel also emphasized that a spinner can play an important role in places like England and Australia. He said, “Slow bowlers in India are in aggressive mode.” But when we go to places like Australia and England, pacers are undoubtedly dominant. They become your main attack options. However, spinners also have work to do. They need to ensure that they do not allow the run speed to increase and the pressure to slip. Therefore it is very important for them to understand the situation and adjust accordingly.
The India-England series was played at home with SG balls. However, the Duke ball will be used in England. According to Akshar Patel, while bowlers need to make some adjustments, this is not a major concern as it only provides more support to the bowlers.
He further said, “I think the bowler’s ball helps the bowlers more. In English conditions it becomes more useful for bowlers, as the seam is more clear. So the seam movement increases for the bowlers. There is really not much to consider in such a situation. It is like a pink ball test. When you play the pink ball test, you have to adjust the red ball to the pink ball.
