India vs South Africa: Leg spinner Poonam Yadav said that the Indian spinners are considering a plan to apply on unheard surfaces for the upcoming T20 series after winning the ODI series.

India’s senior bowler Poonam Yadav on Tuesday admitted that the spin department is not up to the mark in the ongoing ODI series against South Africa, adding that the slow bowlers of the home team are working to change their game. The Indian women’s team, known for their strong spin attack, were let down by their twisters in a five-match series, which the spectators gained 3–1. Apart from Rajeshwari Gaikwad, who took five wickets in four matches, the other spinners failed to provide the expected impact from him.

Poonam Yadav said during a virtual pre-match press conference ahead of the fifth ODI on Wednesday, “We beat South Africa and even when they came here.

“So, we talk about what we can do in practice sessions. Do we discuss what is next if the wicket is not helping? What can we do when the wicket is not helping? , We are focusing on that ”she added.

However, she is hoping to do better in the three-match T20I series starting on Saturday.

“In T20 we will try to do better. We may not be able to implement our plans in ODIs. But we are working on it and will improve in the matches ahead.”

The low-leg spinners have so far been unable to take a single wicket in four matches played in a five-match series.

“As a senior player, the role that I have in the team, I have not been able to complete these matches, but going forward I will try according to the needs of the team. Because in T20 you cannot go in. The wicket is with you Hai (batsman), ”he said.

The 29-year-old said he worked on adding variety to his bowling during the applied break COVID-19 but needed a few more matches to get it right.

He added, “I’ve added variations. I’ve added the flipper, tried it out in the match, but we’ve been playing for a long time because of COVID-19.”

He said, “Maybe we’ll take a little more time to settle down. I need to do more work on the flipper.”

Captain Mithali Raj turned to her deputy Harmanpreet Kaur with the ball several times in the series and Poonam Yadav said that the T20 captain can help the team if she bowls at least in the format.

“We talk a little bit, she asks how his ball was because only one bowler on the field can help the other. He is working on his bowling and he has done well. If he is in T20 If bowling, it will help our team. “
