The prevailing heatwave in England provides a perfect opportunity to play two specialist spinners, said former India pace spearhead Zaheer Khan, who sees no harm in people having high expectations from the young left-arm wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav in the upcoming five-Test series starting August 1.

“Yes, if conditions are hot, it may be difficult for fast bowlers but then you always have the option to play two specialist spinners. If the conditions remain like that, they (Indian team management) might be tempted to play two spinners,” Zaheer told PTI.

Young Kuldeep has been the talk of the town with his impressive show in the limited overs matches. When asked if too much pressure is being put on the young spinner, Zaheer begged to differ.

“Why shouldn’t there be expectations? The expectations have grown since he has done well at the international level. When you do well, it is bound to happen and he (Kuldeep) will have to handle that.”

The architect of India’s last Test series win in England (in 2007) feels that South Africa series is an indicator that Virat Kohli’s men are on right direction as far as the longest format is concerned.
