Spin bowlers are often described to be match-winners for their teams in any format and especially, in T20 internationals, they tend to control the middle overs pretty well. They can turn a match on very quickly and every team needs to have at least one spinner who has all the variations and control among the bowlers.
The spinners nowadays haven’t relied so much on the conditions for the T20 games and wrist spin has been of the highest demand in the limited-overs games especially. With a note on that, here are the five best bowling figures for a spinner in T20 Internationals.
5 Spin Bowlers With The Best Bowling Figures In T20Is:
The former Sri Lankan spinner Rangana Herath is one of the best left-arm spinners in the history of the game with some excellent numbers in all the formats. He played just the 17 T20 Internationals for Sri Lanka picking up 18 wickets at an economy rate of 6.13 but was very effective.
Herath produced an outstanding spell in the 2014 T20 World Cup against New Zealand and ended up picking 5 wickets for just the 3 runs in 3.3 overs with 2 maidens. His spell made sure that Sri Lanka defended just 119 to win the game by 59 runs. It is the fifth-best bowling figure for a spinner in T20 internationals.
