Broad fears slow, dry pitches may give India upper hand against England

Washington: England all rounder Stuart Broad is worried that slow pitches might hinder his squad`s performance while playing against India.

Broad believes that the dry wicket at Trent Bridge would benefit Indian spinners.

He fear s that even his home county ground at Trent Bridge, where he took a hat-trick against India three years ago and Jimmy Anderson has a phenomenal record, would not provide much help for the seamers in this week`s first Test against India, The Guardian reported.

Broad said that the drainage system, on which clubs have spent a lot of money, is the reason behind the ` dry` wickets.

The Indian cricket team is well-known for its strong spin attack whereas England spin-bowling options remain alarmingly limited after the retirement of spinner Graeme Swann, report added.
