England approach Saqlain Mushtaq’s guidance to solve spin woes:  England were in a fix after the smashing defeat against Pakistan in the 4 mathces test series live right now in England.

With Pakistan leg-spinner Yasir Shah taking 10 wickets, Alastair Cook’s men suffered a 75-run in last week’s first Test at Lord’s.

England have now roped in former Pakistan off-spinner Saqlain Mushtaq a coaching consultant at Old Trafford. England have been without a specialist spin coach since  2014.

England is now looking forward to working with Saqlain, who took a record four for 74 when Pakistan beat England by
108 runs way back in 2001.

“You’ve got to use the knowledge of the people you’re lucky enough to have come in and work with you,” said Stokes.

“It would be silly if the batsmen didn’t try to get anything out of him, pick his brains and ask how the guys who were successful against him played. So we might have to change where you have to think ‘I can do this but no, I can’t do that’, if it’s spinning and
bouncing.”, he further added.

Saqlain Mushtaq, the former Pakistan offspinner, is has officially joined England, as they aim to level the series against his countrymen.

Any margin of victory will suffice for England, and this time Saqlain will be hoping to help, even if only a little.

Saqlain is the second overseas guest coach to be used since Andrew Strauss took on his role at the head of English cricket following the use of Mahela Jayawardene in the UAE and during the World T20.
