Batsmen lack strategy against spin

World Cricket

Mirpur, Bangladesh – Former Pakistan off-spinner Saqlain Mushtaq says a lack of strategy in batting against spin has contributed to slow bowling success at the World Twenty20.

Saqlain, working as a spin consultant for the West Indies team, says “batsmen don't seem to have the kind of strategy they used to have” against spinners, who are thriving in favorable conditions.
