England to announce squad for the India Tour today

England will declare their 15-man squad for the pre-Christmas two-Test tour of India today. If Michael Vaughan’s exclusion as confirmed by the ECB was the major news as of yesterday, there are other points of interest. 
Quiet a few cricketing minds in England are debating who will be the second spinner on the tour. From their considered ramblings, one understands that it is either Graeme Swann or the 20-year-old Adil Rashid from Yorkshire. 
From an Indian perspective, it is irrelevant who is the second or even the first choice. Nevertheless, given their recent leaden-footed display against Sri Lanka’s Ajantha Mendis, it is better for them to keep an eye open on who makes it to the squad.

Do you think English spinners will have an impact?

Swann is in contention... Good point Ravindran LOL... they are always based on pace and things won't be any different... they will play the lone spinner. I don't see England making a historic change in playing 2.
