We spoke about shedding too many wickets in clumps, so the thought was giving ourselves time as a result of, in India, we will meet up with the grounds being quick. Because the event has gone on, spin has performed a giant half. It’s a bit slower off the wicket, so we will bowl our pure lengths,” mentioned Gardner after the match.
