Bangalore: India's success on most occasions depends on its spinners and it wasn't any different in the first match of the World Series. Nooshin's five-wicket haul helped India skittle England for 86 runs a very fitting reply; given India's performance in England.It is always nice to start a tournament on a winning note because that sets the feel-good tone in the camp. Now that India has drawn first blood it is vital that it takes this form into the next match against New Zealand on Tuesday. Once again much will rest on the Indian spinners. That apart India has got a good set of all-rounders in Amita Sharma and Rumeli Dhar who definitely will lend the much needed balance to the Indian squad. One hopes India's batting also comes through it was India's batting that let it down in England. Mithali, Anjum and Hemalatha will have to fire for the team to take on big guns in New Zealand and Australia. However, its India's bowling department that wears a healthy look. Although Julan did not fire, she is a class act and can be expected to come good any time.One hopes India will be able to upstage New Zealand thereby strengthen its position in the points table.
