The IPL 2021 is scheduled to resume in September with a change in the host country from India to the UAE. The tournament was suspended in early May following the covid-19 outbreak in four franchises.
At the time of the tournament’s suspension, it is the Delhi Capitals who are leading the points table. In the batting and bowling department, Shikhar Dhawan and Harshal Patel are the chart leaders respectively. The season saw contrasting matches in Chennai and Mumbai with bowlers enjoying success in the former and the batters at the latter venue.
Going a bit deeper in the bowling aspect of the season, the top three wicket-takers are pacers, followed by two spinners. The spinners were effective in Chennai and Ahmedabad due to the conducive surfaces at those two venues. However, when they move the flatter pitches in the UAE, it would be a challenge for them to worry the batsmen.
IPL 2021: Rating Top 10 Best Spinners In The Tournament:
10. Shahbaz Ahmed – 6.5/10
Shahbaz Ahmed did well in the 5 matches he played – but bowled in 3 innings – where he snapped 4 wickets. His 3/7 against SRH turned the game in RCB’s favour. He was sparingly used by Kohli but was effective when given the ball. His average of just 8 and economy of 6.40 is amongst the best in the IPL.
