Playing four spinners is good strategy: Jadeja

Indian team's ploy of playing four spinners at the cost of a second pacer would stand them in good stead in the second innings, feels debutant all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja, who dismissed Jonathan Trott and Kevin Pietersen on the first day of the fourth cricket Test.

‘Four spinners will come in handy later in the game. Especially in the second innings, via the bowlers' foot marks. Currently the wicket is neither helping fast bowlers nor spinners. I think spinners will get more and more help as the game progresses. Fast bowlers' deliveries are going slow after pitching,’ Jadeja said at the post-match media conference. Jadeja said his team was aiming to restrict the visitors to between 300 and 350 on Friday.

‘The less number of runs we give the better it will be for us. The ball will start turning on day two or three. As footmarks develop, the ball will starting turning more,’ said the all-rounder.
