Pakistan former bowler Saqlain to work with England spinners
LONDON: England are looking for more normal help for their spinners subsequent to enlisting previous Pakistan bowler Saqlain Mushtaq for the Old Trafford Test which begins on Friday.
Saqlain connected up with England for practice in Manchester today and will work with spinners Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid, and in addition encouraging batsmen how to play Pakistan leg-spinner Yasir Shah.
Britain have not had a changeless twist mentor following Mushtaq Ahmed came back to Pakistan toward the begin of 2014 and they are quick to address the circumstance. It is thought a mentor will join the squad for the winter voyages through India and Bangladesh, where twist will be noticeable.
Saqlain is one of the contenders for the part while Daniel Vettori, the previous New Zealand left-arm spinner, as of late invested energy with the England Performance Program at a preparation camp in Dubai. Robert Croft, who played 21 Tests, was enlisted for a piece of the previous winter’s voyage through South Africa.
Mushtaq Ahmed worked intimately with Graeme Swann amid his time with England, helping Swann get to be one of the world’s best spinners. Britain know Moeen needs tutoring, particularly as he has attempted to make an impression with the ball since England recaptured the Ashes the previous summer.
Rashid has played just three Tests, against Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates last fall, however is back in the squad for Old Trafford as England hope to square the Investec Series, which Pakistan lead 1-0. Previous England pace bowler Andrew Caddick will go through a day with the group before the Third Test at Edgbaston, which begins on August 3.
Caddick has been welcomed for the instructional meeting on August 1, in which he will watch the session and work close by England’s quick bowlers.
Caddick took 234 wickets in 62 Tests and was a piece of a compelling new-ball mix with Darren Gough under the captaincy of Nasser Hussain. Then, England head selector James Whitaker is prepared to clear up the part of his board one week from now when he names the squad for the Third Test. Whitaker and kindred selectors Angus Fraser and Mick Newell were condemned for forgetting Jimmy Anderson for the First Test at Lord’s, despite the fact that the paceman had proclaimed himself fit to play.
