The Indian selectors' decision to not include a spinner in the India 'A' team for the three-day warm-up match against the visiting England side has irked former English captain, Michael Vaughan, who described the tactics as "pathetic".
"India to play no spinners against England in the A team warm-up game ... if that's what the game has come to???? Pathetic tactics," Vaughan tweeted.
The former Test cricketer's displeasure came after the BCCI's new selection committee, headed by Sandeep Patil, decided against the inclusion of a spinner in the 'A' team.
Vaughan, in his outburst, said India was redefining the "home advantage" and warned that they were setting up a wrong precedent for other countries.
