The second test match between India and England being played at the historic ground of Lord’s has reached an exciting turn. In the last session of the fourth day, Moeen Ali sent Ajinkya Rahane and Ravindra Jadeja to the pavilion within 8 runs to return the English team to the match. On the fourth day, the spin bowlers were seen getting turn from the pitch, which benefited Moeen and the England team. The Indian team has come into this match with four specialist fast bowlers and captain Virat Kohli has preferred Ishant Sharma in the playing XI over Ravichandran Ashwin. In such a situation, the big question is whether India can miss Ashwin on the last day of the Test. Australia’s great spin bowler Shane Warne has targeted Team India for ignoring Ashwin in gestures.
A spinner turning the game!!!! Surprise surprise, this is why you always play a spinner no matter what the conditions ! Remember you don’t pick a team just for the first innings. Spin to win @SkyCricket ?

After Moeen Ali took two wickets, Warne tweeted, ‘A spinner is turning the game. Surprise, surprise, that’s why you feed a spinner no matter what the conditions. Remember, you don’t choose the team for an innings. Spin to win. At the time of the toss of the second Test match, Captain Kohli had said about Ashwin’s selection, “The name of Ashwin was obviously in the group we had announced 12 players. But, considering the pitch, the conditions and how the fourth bowler can be an attacking option, we took this decision as a team.
