giving away just one four and two sixes Yadav too had conceded only one four in his four overs although Maxwell took three sixes off him He bowled 12 dot balls The Indian spin doctors displayed better control putting more pressure on the opposition batsmen in the process At a promotional event in Kolkata on Tuesday former Australia captain Michael Clarke stressed on control vis-à-vis a wrist spinner’s success He singled out Yadav for special praise “He (Yadav) is an attacking bowler His control as a wrist spinner from the back of his hand is amazing and it is his strength He has got all the skills spins (it) both ways bowls long spells He did well in the Test series (as well)” Clarke said For an Australian leggie who played his U-19 cricket at the SCG and then enjoyed the advantage of having very long straight boundaries at the Adelaide Oval while plying his trade for South Australia and Adelaide Strikers ground size might always be at the back of Zampa’s mind As for control MS Dhoni didn’t seem to have much confidence in the Aussie when he captained Rising Pune Supergiants in IPL 2016 Zampa played only five matches for his IPL franchise last year although he finished with a very creditable economy rate of 676 and bagged a six-for This year also he played only six games for Pune despite the fact that Steve Smith replaced Dhoni as skipper Imran Tahir a late entrant to the fold had been preferred over Zampa The Eden Gardens outfield however has an approximate radius of 75 yards which might work to Zampa’s advantage But for him it would be more about regaining confidence “It is tough sometimes;
