We are better off playing to our strength, spin.

More importantly, 3-seamer bowling line means the pacers are having to take charge of the attack, something they don't in their regular job, ie, domestic league. Our pacers are mostly support system to our spinners in the FC matches where they come and bowl few customary early overs with the new ball and then the SLA's take charge.

When they are not groomed to attack in the domestic league, we can't expect them to do the same in the international matches.
I agree totally, but we do need to groom them somewhere. Might as well be at the international stage. There will be some growing pains along the way, but I'm with Sohel bhai on this.
