It's been more than 10 years now since the legendary Shane Warne retired from the game and yet the Aussies are finding it difficult to get another leg-spinner to fill his shoes. The last one to be remembered is Brad Hogg who was used as a replacement to Warne and later on became a regular member of the team after the former's retirement.
But, currently, the Australian side is struggling not only with their ball-tampering scandal but also with some good leg-spinners. Nathan Lyon has been around for a while now, but he is a finger spinner and does not have a good record in the limited overs. The other names that pop-up is that of Adam Zampa, Mitchell Swepson and Cameron Boyce.
Out of these three, Zampa and Swepson have the most likeable chances to get into the limited overs side. With other teams getting their spin combinations ready for the World Cup, it is now a high time for the defending champions to zero-on their leg-spinners for the big tournament in 2019.Published 11 Oct 2018, 19:15 IST
