India ready with spin trap for Aussies

Bangalore:

India have laid out a spin trap for the mighty Australians with old fox Anil Kumble hinting today that a three-pronged spin attack would be unleashed in the first Test here to exploit a "dry" track. After a close look at the wicket at M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Kumble declared that it would "definitely" spin as the match progressed. "It is pretty dry. It is going to be a good wicket. Definitely it is going to spin although it depends when and how," the veteran leg spinner said. "So I think, John Wright, Sourav and the team management are probably leaning towards three spinners," Kumble added.Asked specifically if India would go into the match, starting Wednesday, with three spinners, he said, "I don't know, but that's probably the intention, it all depends." However, Kumble did not think that the track would give India an edge over the Aussies. (PTI)
