Spin may not be Australia's achilles heel

Australia have rarely been a poor side, but over the years they have been susceptible against good spin bowling. However, Australia's successes against subcontinental sides paint a different picture, says Osman Samiuddin in the National.

They may not score heavily off them, or rotate the strike nearly enough - David Warner in Abu Dhabi last night was a good example - and they may even lose wickets to them but somewhere along the way, somehow, they more often than not find a way through, of repelling spin's cumulative and grinding effect.
