Melbourne, Dec.23 (ANI): While all eyes would be on Pakistan young and energetic pace attack during the first Test against Australia starting December 26, Pakistani leg spinner Danish Kaneria is also expected to play a major role in the match.
Kaneria, who just went past legendary leg-spinner Abdul Qadir by bagging his 245th Test wicket in 55 matches, in seen as a major weapon against the Aussie batting line up.
Kaneria proved his worth during the just concluded New Zealand Test series by bagging 13 wickets in two matches, has also highlighted the need of wrist spinners in the team, especially as Australia does not have one.
"I think it is a distinct advantage. A wrist spinner will get the bounce from any sort of wicket, no matter if it's green or if it's a flat track," a foreign news agency quoted Kaneria, as saying.
Kaneria has an impressive record in Australia, having taken a five-wicket haul in Melbourne and seven wickets in Sydney the last time Pakistan toured in 2004-05. (ANI)
