As I pointed out on WA group when teams announced, the odder decision was to select only one frontline spinner. India went in with three - but what do they know about conditions in Ahmedabad?
Notwithstanding his results, Root is a mediocre captain.
Fortunately, I was too busy to follow play today.
I think Joe Root would say they’ve selected two frontline spinners Wicket with his first ball! Maybe he rates himself above Dom Bess at the minute!
