Square turner at Lord’s?

By the look of things, it might not be too long before it happens.? With Saqlain Mushtaq gaining British citizenship, it may not be too long before he will want to play international cricket for England. Of course, he’ll need to work on his fitness (he seems to have become four times his original size) and stuff, but as he showed in the tour game against India, he can still give the ball a tweak, and also bowl a mean doosra.

So, with Monty and Saqlain, soon we will have the unlikely situation that England has the best international spin attack! And with the fast bowlers not really performing too well of late, and being plagued by injuries, it would be interesting to see what kind of pitches they’ll prepare for home series! And who knows, some stud leg-spinner might come up from somewhere and England will be ready to avenge the 1992-93 humiliation.
