Cricket Australia has now come up with a new plan for playing ths spinners in the sub continent.  Now , they are going to import soil from India to build the typical sub continental pitches in Australia. According to them, this will help the Australian players to play spin well.

These pitches will be outdoor and will be laid near the NCC( National Cricket Centre ) in Brisbane.

Recently, Australia rose to the Number 1 status after a whitewashing England in Australia. But,they will have to play spin well , if they want to have any chance of retaining this status for a long time.

“Our toughest challenge the last few years has been having success away from home,” Clarke told reporters in Brisbane. The Australian team is presently in a training camp in Brisbane ahead of their tour of Zimbabwe and UAE. He added that they did not perform well in India and the wickets in the UAE will be similar.

Australia’s next Test series is in UAE against Pakistan, where a spin heavy attack is expected and the leader of the pack will be mystery spinner, Saeed Ajmal. In their past 13 Test Matches in Asia, they have won just a single one, and the last one came way back in 2011 , against Sri Lanka.

But, these pitches won’t be ready till the next summer and Australian team won’t be able to practice for the UAE tour.According to Cricket Australia’s general manager of team performance Pat Howard , these pitches will be ready by the next Australian summer. He also said that an indoor spinning surface is already there in the National Cricket Centre’s set up.

Howard also added that their one third of their matches are played in sub-continent, which makes this step necessary. They have got some good players of spin bowling but the combined effect of the team must improve.
