Mumbai: Australian spin legend Shane Warne reckons Indian cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni's demand for turning tracks in the ongoing Test series against England is merely a ploy to create doubts in the minds of visiting batsmen.
"You know it's a red soil. You know it is going to spin. I don't like captain specifically asking for it. Asking the curator if we can have a big spin. I don't think you should be asking for it. We know it is going to spin. I think he is playing a few mind games with England batsmen," Warne said at an ESPN event here on Thursday.
"I think the groundsman will prepare whatever wicket he wants to prepare. I am sure Dhoni hasn't even spoken. He just put some doubts in the English batsmen's mind that we are getting huge turning wicket. But I am sure the pitch will be just the same. It is just mind games," the legendary spinner said.
