Trevor Bayliss: India defeat shows England must learn to play spin

England need to work on how they play spin bowling after their tour of India ended in a crushing Twenty20 defeat, says head coach Trevor Bayliss. England lost eight wickets for eight runs in 19 balls to lose by 75 runs in Bangalore, with spinner Yuzvendra Chahal taking 6-25 in his four overs.

The loss sealed a 2-1 T20 series defeat for England, who also lost the Test and one-day series during the tour. “We’re certainly not world-class players of spin,” admitted Bayliss.

“We’re playing against players that are very good players of spin, and they’ve got very good spinners themselves. “When you don’t grow up on it, as players here do, it is difficult. It’s a learning process.”(BBC,2017)
