Joshi said, " I have worked with the basic and technical matters of the spinners. I advised them how to utilize the pitch. I also advised them to set up the fielders appropriately. It is very important for a spinner to set up fielder according to his bowling. I am very glad that Shakib Al Hasan and Mehedi Hasan Miraz understood my advice and they executed that properly and got a good result."
