Well, unless he happens to outbowl Warne, Murali and a bunch of other spinners who've toured. Which is not probable and would only happen on a massive dustbowl...and then I'd back the two Indian spinners anyway.
I like him because he's really underrated so I find myself sticking up for him a lot. And because he's such a sick fielder. Not too fussed about his off-field persona, evangelically Christian so I suspect I might find him rather annoying in person, but I really like him as a cricketer.
Sure, if Udal is your main spinner, I suppose you've got more problems. The reason the top spinners do worse in India is because the team is prepared and just doesn't take risks. Sometimes they have a brain farts against mediocre spinners because try to go after them way too much (esp. if thats the only real weak link). If you look at some of those wickets, the shots they played they would never play against a Warne, or even a Swann.

Nah, forget Udal, this is much worse for India:
I'd back England to win if they somehow came with him as their frontline bowler .
Reckon Clarke is better than Udal tbh. Just like North being better than Doherty, ie.
Why would I come to India with Michael Clarke as my frontline spinner?
