Kolkata :

Notwithstanding the emergence of the new Indian pace attack, spinning legends Bishen Singh Bedi, Bhagwat Chandrasekhar and Erapalli Prasanna still consider the spin attack to be India's strong point. "The spin department has always been our strong point. I still believe India's main strength lies in spin bowling and they should play more than one spinner in one-dayers," said Bedi. The former Indian skipper, who was here for a charity auction of cricket memorabilia last night felt that it was much more difficult to hit a spinner than a paccer. Chandrasekhar, who had mesmerised the batsmen world over with his right arm leg spin, was however a little guarded in his comments though he favoured deployment of two spinners in the field. "It is upto the captain and the team management to decide on the composition, but I think using two slow bowlers will not do any harm or reduce the winning prospects in one-day matches," said Chandrasekhar.
