Chennai: Great Indian batsman Sachin Tendulkar described the greatest weakness of the current England team’s spin throwers. Sachin Tendulkar says English spinner Jack Leach, who is touring India (England), is playing a little slower this time for the England squad and his chances of success will only increase if he helps the spinners. There will be changes in rhythm on the locations.
A change of pace is needed
Tendulkar believes that Jack Leach is not changing his pace, which is necessary for a spinner assisted pitch. As far as I’ve seen he is playing with the same pace, if there is a ‘turn’ and some help from the pitch then a change of pace is needed as it gives the batsmen less time to recover. In 2012, Monty Panesar and Graeme Swann adopted a similar policy.

The importance of reverse swing will increase
Tendulkar believes that due to the red ground and wet weather, the ball will start the reverse swing from 15th and up until 60th. I think fast bowlers will have to play a big role in Chennai and in such a situation the importance of the reverse swing will increase. I think the ball will reverse the swing from 15th to 60th. When the ball is in reverse, the batter has less time.
Tendulkar said: “The ball can also reverse the swing from the 60th to the 80th hour, but due to the smoothness of the ball the batter will have more time to adjust.” He said: “England’s quick attack is so powerful they can take advantage of it. A bowler like Jofra Archer will be able to achieve a reverse swing while experienced James Anderson has always been successful in both swing and reverse swing.
Tendulkar said: “ Ben Stokes is going to play a few overs as well and he has a good quick attack in the presence of Stuart Broad. It’s such a bowling attack that has a lot of experience and a few young players who are just starting their careers.
