Me and Ashwin make a good pair for India: OjhaHyderabad: Young left-arm spinner Pragyan Ojha today said he and Ravichandran Ashwin have it in them to take forward the legacy of great Indian spinners of the past as they are bowling well in tandem.

Ashwin (6/31) and Ojha (3/44) shared nine wickets between as India bundled out the visitors for 159 after scoring 438 in their first innings in the first Test here

"India have legacy of (producing) great spinners and as young spinners we are definitely looking forward to follow their foot steps. We have been picking wickets and the way we are bowling, I am confident that we can do well in this series," Ojha said after rain-affected third day.

Ojha said they miss the experience of Harbhajan Singh but he and Ashwin are up to the task.
"The most important thing is to win games for India whether it`s Harbhajan Singh or Ashwin. When I was bowling with Bhajju-pa, I used to talk a lot to him. That`s the kind of thing we miss.

"With Ashwin and me playing together, we also talk to each other a lot. The amount of cricket he has played obviously helps. Ashwin and I have bowled really well and we should do well in the upcoming games," he said.

Ojha, who represents Hyderabad in first-class cricket, said he was disappointed that he did not get a five-for in the first innings but hoped to get it in the second innings.

"To be very frank, I was looking to take five wickets here. Specially when you are playing for Hyderabad, growing up here, you played a lot of games here. It would have been really special. Nevertheless I`ve got wicket in the second innings. I`m looking forward to do it," Ojha, who took the only wicket in Kiwi`s second innings, said.
