Overseas spinners coming to Indian shores might fantasise of the ball turning square, but not New Zealands Mark Craig.The one that goes straight is probably just as invaluable as the ball that turns. I think over here, at times it can probably do too much, so the key is trying and find a way for the ball to slide on straight, he said a week out from the first of three Tests in Kanpur.Craig is yet to play a first-class match in the country and has not played Test cricket in seven months after a beamer struck his hand while playing for his state side Otago. He has used his time away from the game to make technical changes, he said. All of them pertained to his bowling action, which a spinner relies on quite heavily.I was getting pretty flat with the shoulders, trying to get my shoulders back to 45 [degrees, to be taller at the crease] when I load up, Craig said. Not getting too long in my delivery stride and just closing off with the feet. So just three things that I can always go back and look on now. And yeah, happy with the changes Ive made.His tweaks have come in the wake of two dismal series against Australia last season - seven innings, 137.2 overs and only 10 wickets.Craig said New Zealand have observed Indias spinners to gain insight on how to bowl in subcontinent conditions. R Ashwin was recently called the best in the world by his coach Anil Kumble, and Ravindra Jadeja picked up 10 wickets in a match in the final of the Duleep Trophy - the first-class tournament that kicked off Indias domestic calendar in 2016-17.Theyre probably different spinners to our boys, but theyre world class, Craig said. They tend to play around a little bit with, I suppose, undercutting the ball slightly so they get that ball to skid and one to grab. Weve done a bit of work at watching how they bowl and at the same time weve got to do what we do.New Zealand have three spinners in their squad. Craig bowls offspin, Ish Sodhi, legspin, and Mitchell Santner, left-arm spin. Craig understood that there would be a lot expected of them but was mindful of not allowing that pressure to push them into trying too much.Theres a lot of expectation that falls on you [when] you go into spinning conditions, I think its key to not try and reinvent the wheel. Just keep doing what our boys have been doing and let the wicket do it for us.Those boys have played [in India] a bit more than I have. So [I am] sitting next to them on the bus and talking shop so to speak, just about the paces to bowl and how the wickets generally are like and things like that. Were always talking, pretty tight unit. The chance that a New Zealand side might play three spinners in a Test, if it goes ahead, is pretty exciting.Craig hasnt ignored his batting. He has three Test fifties and is known for an ability to hang around and frustrate bowlers. Just trying to nurdle it, he joked in response to a question on whether hes tried to hit his team-mates for sixes. Keep it on the ground mate, bat longer.The New Zealanders play their first match of the tour, a three-day game against a Mumbai XI in Delhi, on Friday.Charles Haley Jersey .

John Tavares, Thomas Vanek and Kyle Okposo were also being counted on to slow down sizzling Rangers forward Rick Nash. That plan didnt go so well early. Larry Allen Womens Jersey . This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. Tony Dorsett Jersey . -- If Henry Burris has his way, he will be the starting quarterback to lead the Hamilton Tiger-Cats back to the Grey Cup next year.CHICAGO -- Bears quarterback Jay Cutler left Monday nights game with a hand injury, making it an even half-dozen Chicago players forced out against the Philadelphia Eagles.Cutler injured his hand trying to hold off the Eagles Destiny Vacao on a strip-sack. He played two more series after that, and was examined on the sideline before heading into the locker room. He was replaced by Brian Hoyer with less than a minute left in the third quarter.Linebacker Lamarr Houston may have suffered the most serious injury, clutching his left knee after trying to rush the passer in the second quarter. He was tended to on the field by team medical personnnel before walking gingerly toward the sideline.ddddddddddddHouston tore the ACL in his right knee celebrating a late sack in a blowout loss at New England in October 2014.Also sidelined were nose tackle Eddie Goldman, who was carted off with an ankle injury shortly after getting caught at the bottom of the pile; and safety Adrian Amos and cornerback Bryce Callahan, who exited with concussions in the third quarter.---AP NFL website: http://www.pro32.ap.org and AP NFL Twitter feed: http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL ' ' '
