We are just a few days away from the T20 World Cup 2022. Almost all of the teams have settled down now. Due to the fact that the World Cup will be held in Australia, the spinners will also play a significant role in the tournament. There are a lot of big grounds in Australia that are difficult to clear. Occasionally, the wind can make it difficult for the players to clear the ropes because of the strong wind.
There are also a few wickets in Australia that are dry and drifting as well. As a whole, there are a lot of scopes for spin bowlers to flourish in this game. Let us have a look at the top 5 spin bowlers who may be able to dominate the World Cup this year:
Shadab Khan in T20 World Cup 2022
He is the vice-captain of the Pakistan cricket team and one of the best leg spinners in the world. Shadab played a magical game on the UAE pitches the last time he played there. It is possible for him to drift the ball in the air. The googly he bowls is very sharp, and he bowls a great flipper alongside it.
It is also worth noting that Shadab relies heavily on his bat as well. It is worth mentioning that his energy on the field is something to be admired. Because of the fact that he has played freelance cricket for many years, he has also accumulated a great deal of experience.
Mujeeb Ur Rahman in T20 World Cup 2022
During this World Cup, Rashid Khan’s right-hand Mujeeb Ur Rahman will be keen on dominating his team. You never know, Afghanistan may very well prove to be the dark horse if Mujeeb and Rashid both have a good T20 World Cup. Mujeeb is a cricketer who thinks before he acts. The young man is only 21 years old, but he is already very experienced in the field.
As a freelance cricketer, he has played all over the world and gained a wealth of experience. As well as bowling during the powerplay, he also bowls during the middle overs of the innings. With an economy of around 6 to 7, he maintains an elite level of economic performance. There is no doubt that his googly is a tough one to pick. The flipper is also used by him in order to assist him.
Wanindu Hasaranga in T20 World Cup 2022
There is no doubt that the batters are dancing to the tunes of Wanindu Hasaranga. There has been much criticism of RCB for buying Hasaranga for 11 crores, but with every match, he plays in the IPL, Hasaranga proves what a great buy he was and what a great addition he has been. As Hasaranga has a fast round-arm action, he is also hard to pick because of his fast round-arm action.
In addition to his sharp googly, he has a quick flipper as well. Due to the fact that he turns the ball square, his stock delivery itself is difficult to play. On a dry pitch, he would be able to rattle any international batting order within minutes.
Tabraiz Shamsi in T20 World Cup 2022
There is no doubt that Shammo, the magician from South Africa, is expected to be one of the top spinners in the T20 World Cup this year. ICC rates him as one of the best players in the world. When the powerplay is activated, Tabraiz is a nightmare for many batters. Due to the fact that South Africa usually asks Markram to roll his arm over on a powerplay, they have two spinners who can bowl on the powerplay.
It is Shammo’s role to go for runs when he is bowling but to pick up wickets when he is bowling. It is clear that the South African attack is capable of being deadly if Shamsi bowls in tandem with Rabada and Nortje. The batter is beaten in the flight itself.
Axar Patel in T20 World Cup 2022
As ‘Bapu’ is known to his teammates, he received a surprise call from the national team to join the squad. In the absence of Jaddu due to an injury, Axar Patel gets a chance to take his place. It is true that even in Jaddu’s presence, Axar deserved a chance to prove himself. In the past few years, his numbers in the IPL have been phenomenal.
During the recently concluded India VS Australia series, he was regarded as the best bowler for his national team. Sticking to his strengths is what he does best. The fact that he is not a great ball-turner is something he knows that he needs to focus on when he is playing the game. Furthermore, he offers the batters an option at number seven as well.
