The age old method of destroying a spinner's rhythm is to use the feet to force him to vary his length and line. Such technique was regularly used by our earlier batsmen of 80s and 90s. That's how SRT destroyed Warne. Sixer Siddhu employed it very effectively. What has happened today? Did we see anyone trying that? Check out how many stumpings have been in the recent past and we will know how good these guys are at using their feet against spin? Only exception to that in the current team isnMurali Vijay. Rest all play from the crease. This allowed the not so great spinner just hold his l&l and the batsmen did the rest to themselves with some aid from the pitch.
You need guts and speed to advance down the pitch or else it looks damn silly. Hardly any Indian batsman these days is good at it, not even Kohli I don't think.
