Former Indian cricketer Bishan Singh Bedi has expressed fear of spinners disappearing from teams. The ongoing Test match played between India and England at Southampton, has both teams playing without a specialist spinner.
“Where are all the spinners? India would never have dreamed of going into a Test without one during my career. Never. But it’s not just India. There aren’t any anywhere else either. No one is throwing the ball up, giving it a chance to turn. Everyone is bowling medium pace – even the spinners.”, Bedi was quoted as saying by Sunday Express.
Bishan Singh Bedi played 67 Test matches for India, and taken a total of 266 wickets at an average of 28.71.
