The ICC T20 World Cup 2021 ended on Sunday with Australia winning an ICC title for the very first time in the history of the tournament. Contrary to everyone’s expectations, Australia exhibited sensational performances to finish at number two in Group 1 after the end of the Super 12 stage. Aaron Finch and Co. met Kane Williamson’s New Zealand in the summit clash and registered a clinical win by 8 wickets.

There is no denying that the slow and sluggish tracks of the UAE offered great help to the spinners. Spinners ruled the roost in the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. Three out of the top five highest wicket-takers in the tournament are, in fact, spinners. Perhaps, it wasn’t something that nobody had expected. Spinners always have an impact on the slow and sluggish tracks of the UAE.

On that note, here’s a look at five spinners who performed admirably in ICC T20 World Cup 2021.

There is no denying the fact that Wanindu Hasaranga is one of the rising stars in the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. He impressed one and all with his fearless attitude and wicket-taking ability. The Sri Lanka spinner finished the tournament as the highest wicket-taker, having managed to pick 16 wickets in 8 matches at an average of 9.75.

He was the biggest bet in Sri Lanka’s bowling line-up. Every time when a partnership was developing, Hasaranga ensured he breaks that. Most of his wickets were amongst top seven in the batting line-up, which tells you the value of those breakthroughs. Not to forget that Sri Lanka were placed in the Group of death, which comprised teams like South Africa, Australia, West Indies, England, which makes you want to praise Hasaranga’s performance even more.
