Mushtaq Ahmed not worried by Pakistan’s spin attack – Cricket News Update
England’s spin bowling coach (UAE).
The Poms are scheduled to play a complete series of three Tests, four One Day Internationals (ODIs) and three Twenty20s against Pakistan, starting from Tuesday, January 17, 2012 at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
Although the series will be played at a neutral venue, Pakistan is considered to be the host nation.  The country has been unable to conduct any international competitions at home due to the terrorist attacks on the Sri Lankan cricket team back in 2009.
However, conditions in UAE are pretty much similar to that in, as the pitches are slow and have assistance for spinners.
Due to this, the Men in Green are expected to trouble England, team which is currently number one in the Test and Twenty20 rankings.
Spinners like have been lethal against oppositions on slow wickets in Dubai and Abu Dhabi. They will be looking forward to do well against the current world number one side in order to improve
their rankings.
However, Mushtaq says his side will manage to counter the Pakistani spin attack. He added, “England batsmen have learned to play spin bowling. They can manage spin with good control. We won a World Twenty20 in the where conditions are similar.
At the end, it all depends on individual players, they have to understand and learn the things to survive. And they are very hard workers.”
Furthermore, Mushtaq said that the Poms have quality pacers, who can bowl more than 90 miles per hour with consistency and with that ability; the wickets do not really matter a lot.
The former Pakistani cricketer further went onto say, “Pakistan no doubt has improved a lot and rankings sometime don't reflect your standing. And has been in top form over the last two to three years. So I expect it would be a good quality series”
England recently visited for a five match ODI series, but the team was whitewashed on slow wickets. They will be hoping to improve their performance and overcome the Green Shirts convincingly.
