It's evident, isn't it - bowling isn't India's strong suit… and yes I have heard all this talk about playing to your strengths, but in a limited over game, if 6 batsmen don't work, then 7 won't… But batting later - first, my common sense gyan about India's bowling woes.
India has so far played 2 spinners Chawla and Harbhajan , and Zaheer and Munaf as the new ball options. Interestingly, while other teams like South Africa have tossed the new ball to a spinner, India has preferred to stick to medium- fast bowlers (make that more medium than fast - either seldom bowls over 135 kmph at their fastest).
As I watched India bowl at Ireland today, something that was almost self-evident struck me hard. Sure, Ireland got just 207, but both our spinners had been far from impressive.
