5 Young spinners to watch out for in CPL 2016

The Caribbean Premier League (CPL) has slowly emerged as one of the best platforms for young talented bowlers in the Islands to showcase their talent and gain some reputation. Despite some of the most explosive batsmen participating in the league, the bowlers have managed to maintain even balance in the contest between bat and ball. The inaugural season saw many young names do well in the limited opportunities they got. They have been quite innovative and put in extraordinary efforts to outclass their counterparts and hog the limelight. This year again will be their chance to shine. Here we throw some light on the 5 Young spinners who we expect to do well in CPL 2016.

Nikhil Dutta, the Canadian mystery spinner, will surely look forward to making a larger impact this season. His bowling style is very similar to Sunil Narine, his idol. Dutta is a right-arm off-spinner whose wicket taking delivery happens to the knuckle ball. He hogged the limelight after foxing Kevin Pietersen with his off-break last season. Since then he is a widely discussed name in the Canadian cricketing circle. The 21-year-old cricketer, who will be playing for the St Kitts and Nevis Patriots, aims to create his own identity in the T20 leagues all around the world.
