Rahane says spin-friendly track also tough for them

After a convincing 3-0 victory in the three-match Twenty20 series, Team India now is looking to clinch the two-Test series against New Zealand as the first Test starts on 25th November on Thursday at Kanpur. The experts including the curator of the pitch have opined that track at Kanpur is likely to favor spinners mainly. Speaking on the issue, India's stand-in skipper Ajinkya Rahane said it will be equally difficult for Indian batters to score runs on a spin-friendly track. Rahane explained commenting, "We will have to adjust with whatever the track behaves. But we generally are not habituated in playing on this type of surface."
New Zealand skipper Kane Williamson has given hint that they might field three spinners.
