Off-spinner Harbhajan Singh, in the middle of a fine English summer, believes he can improve his bowling further by varying his pace judiciously on the slowish wickets.

"It is very important for a spinner to vary his pace on slowish wickets like the ones you get in England. If you slow up your delivery, it makes it still more difficult for the batsmen to time their shots," Harbhajan said after claiming three for 33 against Kenya in the ICC Champions Trophy match on Saturday.

Harbhajan has so far claimed eight wickets in the three games he has played in England so far - five from two matches against England in the NatWest Challenge and now the three against Kenya.

His five wickets in the NatWest Challenge came at an average of 8.40 runs per scalp and an economy rate of 2.10.

"I am happy that I could claim three Kenyan wickets but could have done better had the wind not been blowing as wild as it did at Rose Bowl on Saturday."
