TOP 5 SPINNERS IN T20 FOR INDIA
T20 is the most popular format in the world, with more than 200 million fans. The game has evolved and many factors have contributed to this growth. One of these factors is spinners who have become integral parts of any team’s bowling attack. Spinners help you get wickets at critical junctures, especially when they are deployed early in an innings or when chasing a big total down by getting themselves into position and then taking wickets off their seamers/spinners’ slower balls as they bat on opposite sides of the pitch.
With 72 wickets in 65 games, Ravi Ashwin, who is perhaps the best spinner of this generation, is first among Indian players in terms of most t20 wickets taken. For each of his wickets in t20 cricket, Ashwin has given up 23 runs. Ashwin currently holds the record for India’s most World Cup T20 wickets (32 wickets). The lanky spinner’s performance against Sri Lanka was his best in the T20s.
Chahal is currently the first-choice spinner for the Indian national cricket team in T20I matches and also holds the record for the most wickets taken by any bowler in T20I cricket for India. He made his debut for the Rajasthan Royals in the Indian Premier League last year and was awarded the Purple Cap (given to the leading wicket-taker in the IPL tournament) at the end of his first season. Chahal’s rise to prominence over the past 6-8 months has been great to watch for cricket fans.
Yuzvendra Chahal is widely regarded as the best Indian leg spinner in the game right present, despite stiff competition. Yuzi has only played limited-overs international cricket due to the fierce battle for spots, but he gives a lot in all formats.
The second-highest wicket-taker during this time is an Indian leg-spinner. His strike rate of 17.8 has resulted in an amazing total of 55 hits in 42 games. Despite having a below-average average (24.34) and an unimpressive economy rate (8.18), he makes up for it by being able to get wickets under difficult bowling circumstances. Even when the batters are charging, he doesn’t hesitate to attack them. He typically gets wickets thanks to his aggressive attitude.
Chahal has been doing well in Australia, picking up four wickets in three matches. His economy rate is a bit high at 9.75, but he was still named Player of the Match against Australia in Canberra in 2020 when he came on as a concussion substitute for Jadeja.
Indian wrist-spinner Kuldeep Yadav has been fabulous since his debut. He belongs to the conventional category of spinners who bowl slowly and give the ball a good amount of time in the air. Moreover, he has taken these wickets at an outstanding average and strike rate of 13.76 and 11.6 respectively. Batsmen find it hard to read him as his wrist position at the point of delivery is quite deceptive.
He was the youngest player to take a hat-trick in T20I cricket, when he took three wickets against Australia in Mumbai on February 19th 2018 (age 25 years).
Because Ravi is quick in the air and has a sneaky googly, his bowling style is remarkably similar to that of Rashid Khan. Bishnoi recently played in India’s first T20I against the West Indies. Most of the batters in international cricket have never seen him before and are fresh.
Bishnoi competed successfully in the 2020 U-19 World Cup as a member of India’s team.
The Lucknow Super Giants management chose him as one of their three retentions before the 2022 IPL mega auction because his experience with the IPL brought forth the best in him. He is a crucial building component for the Lucknow-based team.
Bishnoi is a 21-year-old who has played four T20Is for India and has four wickets to his name. He has an average of 27 and an economy rate of 6.75. He is sharp, talented, and very promising.
In recent years, Ravindra Jadeja has been India’s top all-rounder in white-ball cricket, along with Hardik Pandya. He has taken 48 wickets in 58 T20I matches for India, with an economy rate of 7.04. Ravindra Jadeja has been in good form in Australia, scoring 326 runs in 29 innings at a strike rate of 124. He has also taken six wickets in 17 overs at an economy rate of 7 and has scored 51 runs in two innings at a strike rate of 165.
Jadeja has performed admirably in two matches against Sri Lanka since the commencement of the Men’s T20 World Cup last year. He picked up two wickets in eight overs, conceding a measly eight runs per over. Jadeja unfortunately did not have a good IPL campaign in 2022.
Even though he might not be the first-choice spinner for the team, Jadeja will still be ahead of other bowling options because of his all-around abilities. In the 20-over format, post-pandemic, Jadeja has been one of India’s best pace hitters at the death overs.
You can take away the fact that India has a lot of spinners in their squad. They have 6 bowlers who claim to be all-rounders and they also have 3 batsmen who can bat at No 8 or lower down the order. The balance of the team is going to be decided by how well these players perform on the field and what their impact on matches is like.
The five spin bowlers who feature in this list include Ravi Bishnoi, Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, Ravichandran Ashwin & Ravindra Jadeja who are all experienced internationals with lots of experience under their belt.
These spinners are the best in T20 for India. They can all be effective with the new ball or out of the middle overs. With the bat, Jadeja and Ashwin are two top-notch finishers who have proved to be unstoppable this season as well. Bishnoi is the best of the rest, but he has not been able to prove it at this level yet. Jadeja and Ashwin have taken most of the wickets in this format, but they are also the most economical spinners in India.
