The England team started the 5-match Test series against India in a very good manner and won the first match. However, the team had to face a crushing defeat in the second match. The biggest positive thing for the English team in both these matches was the excellent performance of their three spinners, who together took a total of 33 wickets in the first two matches. When Team India had to face defeat by 28 runs in the Hyderabad Test match, Test debutant spinner Tom Hartley played an important role in the victory. Now Rehan Ahmed has also revealed the strategy of captain Ben Stokes and coach Tom Hartley regarding this brilliant performance of the spinners.

The team environment is great

England team’s 19-year-old leg spinner Rehan Ahmed has now revealed the captain and coach’s strategy regarding spinners and said that this shows how good the atmosphere of the team is. You must have seen that Hartley and Bashir did not look under pressure after coming here and the credit for this goes to the team. The atmosphere and leadership in our team is such that you forget who you are playing against. Your focus is only on what you need to do. Stokes and head coach Brendon McCullum don’t care how bad things could get. It’s always about what you can get out of it. If I manage to take a wicket after bowling four bad balls, it is better than bowling 16 good balls in a row.

Performed better than Indian spinners in the first 2 tests

In the first 2 matches of this 5-match Test series, the performance of the spinners of England has been much better than that of the spin bowlers of the Indian team. While the Indian spinners managed to take a total of 23 wickets in both the matches, the English spinners took 33 wickets. If we talk about the performance of Rehan Ahmed, he has taken 8 wickets in this series so far and has also scored 70 runs with the bat.
