On a decent track the Eden Gardens, Shane Shillingford tricked a line-up that is known to play spin well. His doosras and prodigiously turning off-spinners caused the Indian top-order many problems and left them in a precarious position. For years, West Indies have been looking for a front-line spinner who holds a spot in the long-run. Shillingford may be the answer to those calls if his performance in his first eleven Tests is anything to go by.
Having made his debut against South Africa in 2010, Shillingford went through a tough time when his action came under scrutiny during the tour to Sri Lanka that year. The tests conducted by the International Cricket Council (ICC) deemed his action illegal and he was only allowed to bowl when he corrected it in June 2011.
