Pakistan’s former off-spinner, Saqlain Mushtaq will work as a spin bowling consultant with England during their upcoming tour to India.

Saqlain Mushtaq told Dawn News that he has got a 15-day visa of India and he will be flying to the neighbouring country on November 1. England will take on the hosts in the first test of the series on November 9 in Rajkot.

Saqlain, who is often rated as one of the best off-spinners of all time and has invented the off-spin variety ‘Doosra’, has worked with West Indies, New Zealand and England before as well.

He served as the spin bowling consultant for England during their second test against Pakistan and he almost neutralized Yasir Shah’s threat during second and third test of the tour.

He has also played an integral role in remodelling Saeed Ajmal’s bowling action after his action was found illegal.
