Vizag: English captain Alastair is confident that his team's 'inexperienced' spinners will continue to trouble the highly rated Indian batting line-up in the second Test.

The English spin troika of Moeen Ali, Adil Rashid and Zafar Ansari, who are under the tutelage of Pakistani great Saqlain Mushtaq, outbowled their Indian counterparts in the drawn first Test in Rajkot.

"If you continue in that level like in Rajkot then there is no reason why we can't put pressure on Indian batting with our spinners," the English captain said on the eve of second Test. "Unfortunately we didn't quite get over the line but we start afresh 0-0 at the start of the second Test. And we are here to give India a run for their money."

Showering praise on the spin trio, he said: "They bowled excellently as a group of three spinners. Everyone came to the party and they took a massive step forward from where they operated in Bangladesh."
