Pakistan rising leg-spinner Shadab Khan has termed the role of leg-spinners in the World Cup 2019 crucial to success on English conditions.

While talking to ICC, Shadab said “On such flat tracks you have to take wickets, otherwise the other side will score 350-plus.”

“If there is spin there it’s very difficult to play if you bowl in good areas, and it’s very difficult to play on any surface. That’s why it’s important. With a leg-spinner, yes you may score runs, but he is a wicket-taker,” he added.

Shadab Khan added that in recent England series every game we were close, our batting is in good form, our bowling hasn’t performed so far but, if you take one or two wickets, then they can slip up.
