Warne said that the foot marks are already visible on the pitch of The Aegis Bowl. The ball will definitely spin here.
The final match of the World Test Championship is being played between India and New Zealand in Southampton. Kiwi team has come in this match with all pace attack. That is, not a single spinner is included in his playing-11. Shane Warne, the legendary leg-spinner of Australia, is not considering it as a good sign for the New Zealand team. Warne said that if the Indian team manages to score 275-300 in the first innings, then the match will be almost over for New Zealand.
Footmarks visible now
Warne said that the foot marks started appearing on the pitch during India’s first innings itself. When this happens, the pitch gets a lot of turn. In such a situation, not having a single spinner can be dangerous for the Kiwi team. Warne said, ‘I am very disappointed to see that New Zealand have not included a single spinner in the playing-11 on this wicket. Remember, if the pitch gives you an indication that spin might be helpful, it definitely does.
Virat Kohli and Ajinkya Rahane have shared a good partnership for the fourth wicket.
Only one spinner was involved in 15 players
Only one spin bowler Ayaz Patel was included in the names of 15 players announced by New Zealand for this match. Had Patel played, the Kiwis would have had to drop either Colin de Grandhomme or Neil Wagner. Seeing the overcast conditions, captain Kane Williamson decided to go with an all-pace attack.
Indian team includes two spinners
Unlike New Zealand, India’s team has included two spinners in the playing-11. Ravindra Jadeja and Ravichandran Ashwin will be seen supporting the three pace bowlers of the team, Ishant Sharma, Mohammed Shami and Jasprit Bumrah. Both the spinners of India can also bat well.
