The T20 World Cup is on cards and the cricket on-lookers are already pumped up for the mega event. The team combinations and the playing conditions are all highly discussed as every team will be aiming to bring their A-game on the field. The T20 format is highly demanding and every decision has to be taken super quick as the pace of the game demands so.
It is a no-brainer that in T20s, the batter seems to get more praises as the firepower with the bat entertains the fans. But it is a fact that bowlers too have fueled the fire of the format. They have often walked in to shift the pendulum to their side and decide the outcome of the game.
As the action is set to unfold, along with the batters, the bowling combinations are also being highlighted. The playing conditions and pitch will naturally affect the selection process of each team. But where do the teams stand when it comes to having the spinning options for the marquee event is something to put the thinking hats on for.
Here’s predicting the spin attack of the top eight teams ahead of the T20 World Cup:
Bangladesh recently scripted history by registering their first bilateral series win against Australia. The spirits of the team will be all high, heading into the T20 tournament. Talking about their spinners, Shakib Al Hasan has been the one leading the spin attack of the side over the years. He has looked in splendid form in the recent series as well and will be the premium spinner for the side.
Over the passage of time, he has been an important player for the side and has been consistently contributing to their success. He can provide the services with both the bat as well as the ball. In his career of 84 T20I matches, he has scalped a total of 102 wickets at a healthy economy rate of 6.8. He has honed his craft by sailing the team to triumph from crunch moments on various occasions.
Along with him, Bangladesh has Mehidy Hasan as another spin bowling action. The off-spinner registered the best match figures for a Bangladesh bowler overseas to help wrap up Zimbabwe for 256 and see his side secure win by 220 runs just before tea on the fifth day of the one-off Test at the Harare Sports Club. He is a potential bowler and Bangladesh can depend on him to get those wickets in the middle overs.
