England's new mantra to tackle spin!

Ahmedabad, Nov 8: England players have found a new technique to tackle Indian spinners ahead of the four-match Test series against India starting November 15.

According to England batsman Ian Bell, England cricketers have been watching Rahul Dravid's batting videos in order to learn playing spin.

"We are going through videos to analyse how Rahul Dravid had played spin, used his feet against them and utilised the depth of the crease to defend and attack them," Bell said.

Having drawn the first two practice games, England would like to leave no stone unturned when they play Haryana on Thursday.

Indians who played brilliantly by not including any top spinner in the team for both the matches, by depriving the visitors a chance to tackle spinners.

Since England batsmen have played Graeme Swann, Monty Panesar and Samit Patel back home, they would have some advantage but playing conditions being totally different in the sub-continent, England players have failed many a times.

In order to overcome that hurdle, they have been watching Rahul Dravid's batting videos, to learn and tackle spinners.

Dravid, known for his solid temperament, was one of the best to tackle spinners and since they have chosen his videos, it would help them tackle spin better.

Looks like the visiting team is taking all the measures to tackle Indian spinners, as spin is the India's key weapon especially in the sub-continent.
