Mumbai: India-born New Zealand spinner Ejaz Patel on Wednesday said he and his fellow spinners were guilty of not bowling accurate lines and lengths in the first Test and needed to be accurate in the second Test starting here on Friday. Is.

Patel said during the virtual press conference, “I think as a spin bowling unit, we were probably to blame for not bowling at the stumps for a long time. Also they (Indian batsmen) are good players of spin. They didn’t give us more chances.”

Patel took three wickets while Rachin Ravindra and William Somerville did not go for a single wicket. In contrast, the spin trio of Axar Patel, Ravichandran Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja together took 17 wickets in the first Test.

Patel said, “We have to make sure that we bowl with accurate lines and lengths. I am sure the players will take lessons and adjust in the next match but the wicket will be different for him.

Patel said that his team is capable of turning things around and will look to register a win in the second Test.
“It’s all about playing the best cricket and everyone has to contribute like the last match. That’s how we want to play, it’s a team effort. At the moment we are playing good cricket and we want to do the same in future as we are comfortable.

Patel said that he is confident that he can perform in any conditions. “We know that they are good spinners but at the same time we are confident that we have good players to play spin.”

I think the irony is that two boys of Indian heritage who grew up in New Zealand were playing here against one of the biggest cricketing nations and fighting for a draw.

Patel said, “I think it is a wonderful story in itself, it was special for us to come here and I think it was wonderful.” Patel, thirty-three, said it was an emotional moment for him to play in that city. is where he was born.

“It’s an emotional moment,” he said. I was thinking about how many times I went through this airport but this time I am representing New Zealand. Memories of coming back for the first time are fresh. It was a special moment for me which I will keep in future.(Language)
