I was just thinking back to Englands past 4 years in the test , and something struck me a little.
Winter 04 - West Indies , 4-0 (No Spinner of any value).
Begin Summer 04 - New Zealand , 3-0 (Without Vettori)
End Summer 04 - West Indies 4-0 (No Spinner)
Winter 05 - South Africa , 2-1 (Nicky Boje ...)
Begin Summer 05 , Bangladesh , 2-0 (There not that good , so you can't really account Mohammed Rafique for anything).
End Summer 05 , Austrailia , 2-1 (Warne, 40 Wickets , and they still lost...)
Autumn/Winter 05 , Pakistan , 0-2 (Kaneria)
Winter 05/Spring 06 , India , 1-1 (Kumble + Singh)
Begin Summer 06 , Sri Lanka , 1-1 (Murali gets 8 wickets in 1 innings).
End Summer 06 , Pakistan , 2-0 , (Kaneria couldn't get control and pressure without decent seem attack with him , but nevertheless , we still struggled)
Winter 06 - Australia , 5-0 , (Warne )
Whenever England come up against a decent spinner , we struggle. Is that our problem?
