No. I have said it many a posts, so apologize to those who have read all over again. This mindset of playing 2-3 seamers is old fashioned, over conservative thinking-and one which will cost us matches over and over again. What is the point of having two seamers if we start with a spinner, and not even finish half of one of these bowlers quota's. Anyone who understands wickets would have realized the wicket has more than normal turn, and it would be beneficial to add another specialist spinner to the lineup. Now this could come at the expense of a batsmen or a pace bowler. Pace bowler would make more sense because the second pacer anyway wont have much of a role to play. Even Windies were bright enough to have only one specialist pacer!

I dont think we will learn from this. We will keep losing because of this stupidity from selectors and team management.
