Former Australia leg-spinner Shane Warne also raised questions about this. He had tweeted that I am very disappointed to see that New Zealand did not include a single spinner in the playing-11 in the final as the footmarks are already visible. If the wicket took a turn and India were able to score 275 or 300 runs in the first innings, the match would be over. Only the weather can be saved. In response to Warne's tweet, a fan questioned his spin bowling and said, Shane, do you know how to spin the ball? This pitch will not dry, because there is a possibility of rain in the rest of the Test as well. Warne did not answer this. But Virender Sehwag jumped into this controversy and he also took a jibe at Warne. While sharing the tweet of the fan who asked Warne the question, Sehwag wrote that Warne you frame it and try to understand about some spin bowling.
