Kolkata: The BCCI's much-awaited spin wing was today set rolling with the constitution of a working group and finalisation of a detailed action plan in a bid to rejuvenate the decaying art of slow bowling in the country. The third spin conclave, held here during the day, chalked out a strategy to identify rookie talents from various parts of the country and harness them through a comprehensive programme to enable India to produce top-flight spin bowlers once again. Briefing newspersons on the day-long deliberations at a five star hotel, BCCI president Jagmohan Dalmiya announced that the working group, christened as the Spin Wing Committee, would comprise legendary bastman Sunil Gavaskar (chairman, National Cricket Academy), spin stalwarts Bishen Singh Bedi, E A S Prasanna, V V Kumar, Ravi Shastri, Anil Kumble as also former middle order batsman Brijesh Patel (director, NCA). BCCI secretary S K Nair would be the convenor while Gavaskar and Patel would be ex-officio members.
