    New Zealand test wicketkeeper BJ Watling's looking forward to having the best view of Ajaz Patel bowling

    New Zealand test wicketkeeper BJ Watling's looking forward to having the best view of Ajaz Patel bowling


    The left-arm orthodox is the only specialist spinner in the Black Caps squad for the two-test cricket series against India starting Friday in Wellington.

    Despite the assumption Patel turns the ball more than Mitchell Santner, who he's replaced in the squad, Watling thinks that's pitch-dependent.



    Curiously, the last New Zealand spinner to take a five-wicket bag at home was Jeetan Patel against the West Indies at Napier in December 2008.
