Bishan Singh Bedi Surprised With The Dearth Of Spinners In England
The current England Cricket Team is filled with the top-class cricketers in batting and bowling sections, but unfortunately, they are failing to make things fall in place when it comes to spin department. After leaving out Moeen Ali from the team, England pinned their hopes in Jack Leach but could not get the desired result. They also left him out of the playing eleven for he final Test against New Zealand at Seddon Park, Hamilton.
After taking a lead of 101 runs in the first innings, England got an excellent chance to work out things when they got two quick wickets for just 28 runs on the board. However, they failed to go with the moment, as Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor played tremendous knocks.
Is there no specialist spinner in the whole of England? Bishan Singh Bedi
During their blistering centuries, one thing looked evident in the middle was the lack of spin bowler for England. Both the stalwart players of New Zealand scored runs with ease facing fast bowlers of the Joe Root-led side. Meanwhile, the legendary spinner of India, Bishan Singh Bedi pointed out the poor tactics of England to leave a spinner in the Test match.
In his tweet, Bishan Singh Bedi highlighted the lack of spinners in England Cricket Team. And also, he called it a shameful story in modern cricket. ”How can #England go into a Test w/out specialist spinner..or is there no specialist spinner in the whole of England..?!! The pretty sordid story of modern Cricket thinking.”

After the departure of Graeme Swann, England have not really managed to get a reliable spinner. Though they got a few youngsters to find a spot in the lineup, none of them succeeded at Test level to make things fall in place. Their specialist bowlers Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid are concentrating on white-ball cricket while Jack Leach is the only specialist available in the ranks.
