Shane Warne stunned to see New Zealand go into WTC finals without a spinner
Australian spin legend Shane Warne was surprised and stunned to find New Zealand going into the WTC final against India. Without a single spin option. Shane Warne stunned to see New Zealand go into WTC finals without a spinner.
It may be mentioned that New Zealand went into this test leaving out both their frontline spinners Ajaz Patel and Mitchell Santner and loaded the team with 4 fast bowlers and a seaming all-rounder .
Warne in his twitter handle slammed the New Zealand team selection in a tweet. Where he said that with big footmarks being created already on the pitch, it is going to spin later in the match going forward and if India manage around 275 to 300 in the first innings they will win.
With India already reaching 146/3 on a seaming pitch in a curtailed day2 after battling hard against the accurate New Zealand fast bowlers. And with more batting to follow, 300 looks a distinct possibility.
However, the weather can still intervene with more rain forecast predicted ahead.
