Sydney, Oct 21: After the defeat of Australia in the recent ODI series with India on Oct 20, famous former Indian cricketer, Sunil Gavaskar hoped that a leg-spinner might make a positive change in the Australian team.
"I think maybe a leg spinner in the team would make a difference to the team. I thought a leg spinner in the Australian team would have made a huge difference in Bangalore," stated Gavaskar on Oct 21.
Stating that bowling would be the key to the Ashes series, Gavaskar zeroed in on Victorian pacer, Peter Siddle and leg spinning all-rounder, Steve Smith as the must haves in the Australian line-up for the series.
"They have got to get the attack right. If Peter Siddle is fit, then he brings something to the team," suggested Gavaskar.
He also added, "I got the impression in the two Tests we just saw that Mitchell Johnson was just too inconsistent but he just got the wickets. They will need consistency in the team."
