TNIE looks at what the Indian spinners bring to the table ahead of WT20.

 

RAVICHANDRAN ASHWIN

The Tamil Nadu bowler could even bowl in the powerplays if needed and in conditions that wil aide spinners, Ashwin will be crucial to India’s plans.

AMIT MISHRA

The leg-spinner is a master of deceving the batsmen with his flight and turn and can run through the sides even in the shortest version of the game. But how he will fit into the eleven remains to be seen. If Dhoni backs him, then there is no way stopping Mishra.

RAVINDRA JADEJA

Jadeja will hardly give any room for the batsmen to free his arms and can also fire in his deliveries at a good pace. But if the track takes some turn, then the left-armer will cherish the conditions.

PART-TIMERS

In sub-continent conditions that stay low and slow Dhoni will also keep the tabs open on Yuvraj Singh, Suresh Raina and Rohit Sharma. Yuvraj infact was a star-performer with the ball in the 2011 World Cup and can be more than useful in Bangladesh.
