Former England off-spinner, Graeme Swann, backed the abilities of young Indian wrist-spinning duo of Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal, during the upcoming series against England.

The young wrist-spinners have been on a wicket-taking spree, since their introduction to International cricket. Chahal and Kuldeep ripped apart the South African batting line-up recently, with their guile and deception.

Both Chahal and Kuldeep were top wicket-takers in the six-match ODI, tumbling records for the most wicket taken by bowlers on South African spin.

Swann cited out that during Pakistan’s visit last time, the likes of Yasir Shah remained successful. Which means according to Swann, English batters are still not adept to wrist spin?

Wrist spinners can do well in England. Yasir Shah did well for Pakistan last year. So, the English players don’t tend to bowl wrist spin or pick it very well. If they’re fit and they’re picked and bowled, they could do very well,” Graeme Swann maintained according to PTI.

Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal have emerged in the international scene with some scintillating displays in the past year. Their ability to take wickets at regular intervals has meant them becoming the lead spinners for India in the limited overs format,” carried on Swann.

Although doubtful now, Virat Kohli was scheduled to feature for Surrey during June, to acclimatise to the conditions of England, which troubled him in the past, barring multilateral events.

It’s good Virat’s been given a chance to go play for Surrey. He’ll enjoy Surrey trust me. The wickets at the Oval are unbelievable to bat on. He will have a good tour,” suggested the most successful offie produced by England.

That said, Swann hinted at the fact that his county stint won’t help him much due to the absence of quality bowlers such, as Broad and Anderson.

Unless he plays against Jimmy (James Anderson) or Broady (Stuart Broad) in county games, I don’t think it’ll help because they’re so much better than the county bowlers. But I think it’s good. I think it’s good that English cricket allowed foreign players to come over and train before,” concluded Graeme Swann.
