8. Afghanistan – Qais Ahmed
someone like Qais Ahmed amongst all their spinners stands farthest in the pecking order, as the team will largely first cast its two world-class spinners (Rashid Khan and Mujeeb). If the wickets are pace-friendly. then maybe even Mujeeb might warm the benches
7. West Indies – Andre Fletcher
Although while many might perceive Andre Fletcher as a reserve opening batter, in reality, he has got picked merely because of his wicket-keeping ability. The 33-year old is considered as a backup keeper for Nicholas Pooran and possibly might even lose out to Evin Lewis
6. South Africa – Wiaan Mulder
if the conditions are spin-friendly, then South Africa might add an extra spinner in place of Pretorius or might discard one of its pacers in the playing XI. Overall, by being a seaming all-rounder, Mulder only potentially looks to grab a spot when Pretorius’ services are unavailable.
5. Pakistan – Mohammad Wasim Jr
when it comes to the selection of the 20-year old Mohammad Wasim Jr, the all-rounder might only play when the senior pros like Imad Wasim or Shadab Khan do sustain an injury or malfunction.
4. New Zealand – Mark Chapman
Although, he does bowls some part-time left-arm orthodox spin, in totality the two established all-rounders along with Daryl Mitchell might entirely discard him from playing any games.
3. England – Sam Billings
Since the year 2015, Sam Billings has been extensively part of England’s white-ball setup and often gets infused when the likes of Buttler or Bairstow are unavailable. As a wicketkeeper-batsman, he can dwell himself anywhere in the top seven but predominately various teams have often also used him as a floater.
2. Australia – Josh Inglis
With Matthew Wade also being someone who has very much batted anywhere in the top seven in the current times, he seems to be the first choice wicketkeeper, along with Josh Inglis being the deputy.
1. India – Axar Patel
Axar Patel has been seen as a potent backup of Ravindra Jadeja in all formats. Earlier, the all-rounder was infused into the red-ball squad for the home series against England, which later also helped him clinch a seat in the T20I team.
