London, Jun 6 (PTI) Sachin Tendulkar reckons the spin-friendly Oval pitch will make India a confident side going into the World Test Championship final against Australia and their tweakers could become doubly dangerous if they are able to get "that drift" and make the ball talk in the air.

With India boasting of two wonderful spinners to choose from in R Ashwin and Ravindra Jadeja, Tendulkar said the team can take a lot of heart from the pitch factor.

"The Indian team will be happy that they are playing at the Oval. The nature of the Oval pitch is such that it assists the spinners as the match goes on. So, spinners will come into play a little bit.
