Former Australian opener and Perth Scorchers coach Justin Langer singled out his side's inability to play spin as one of the biggest reasons for their first round exit from the Champions League Twenty20.
The Scorchers, who were making their third straight appearance in the CLT20, were clubbed in Group A alongwith IPL heavyweights Kolkata Knight Riders and Chennai Super Kings and lost both those games. Langer, a solid left-handed opening batsman played 105 Tests for Australia and scored 23 hundreds for his country. He was no alien to the mystery and guile of spinners from across the world but his young side were clearly baffled by the likes of Sunil Narine, Piyush Chawla, R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja.

Langer said no matter how hard players prepared, it was going to be difficult in India and compared the art of playing spin to eating chillies. ('No Room for Complacency in KKR')
