Ahead of the big match between India and Australia at Mohali, former India batsman VVS Laxman believes that the Australian spinners will have a major role to play in this match. Laxman believes that Adam Zampa will be an important cog for Australia in this match. Laxman says “In this World Cup the spinners have played a huge role. For Australia that role is being played by Adam Zampa, a very good leg-spinner, who has a lot of a lot of self belief in his skills and abilities. I like Zampa because of his attacking and aggressive attitude. While he looks to restrict run flow, but picks up wickets at crucial wickets in the middle overs and that is why he is an important cog in this Australian bowling line-up.” FULL CRICKET SCORECARD: India vs Australia, Match 31, ICC World T20 2016 at Mohali
