Never seen two Aussie spinners create this much pressure: Ganguly

Former captain Sourav Ganguly on Sunday said that he has never seen Australian spinners before the duo of Nathan Lyon and Steve O'Keefe put so much of pressure on an Indian batting line-up in sub-continental conditions.

"Their two spinners are creating pressure from both ends.

It's a strategy which was used by Team India previously. But I've never seen Aussie spinners putting so much pressure," Ganguly said at the launch of former Bengal speedster Shib Shankar Paul's academy in Bagha Jatin.

Aussie rookie leftarm spinner Steve O'Keefe's 12/70 in the first Test in Pune was the best figures by a visiting spinner on Indian soil as India faced a 333-run humiliation.
