T20 World Cup 2024: Top 10 teams based on their spin combinations

All 20 teams are working hard on their preparations as the T20 World Cup 2024 draws near. There are just a few days left till it begins. The world-class 20-over competition will begin on June 2 in the USA and the West Indies. The shorter version of the game usually favours batters, although spinners may also benefit from the slower tracks in Windies' land.

Pitches often slow down and make reasonable twists, which keeps hitters from hitting all of their available power. This time, every participant made their spin unit stronger by keeping this in mind. Watching how the batters perform on the challenging surface at the main event promises to be an intriguing duel.

Top 10 cricket teams based on their spin combinations

It's noteworthy to notice that the hosts, West Indies, don't have a potent spinner in their lineup, even though the other teams have bolstered their spin attacks for the occasion. They will mostly rely on World No. 3 T20I bowler Akeil Hosein as their spin unit. The other two alternatives open to them are all-rounder Roston Chase and inexperienced left-arm spinner Gudakesh Motie.

9. Australia

Australia examined the conditions and changed their spin section at the last minute. They looked into adding a third spinner to the lineup in addition to Glenn Maxwell and Adam Zampa. Despite not having participated in a T20I match since the 2022 World Cup, Ashton Agar was still able to make it back onto the squad. Notably, Australia's primary weapon is leg-spinner Zampa, who can mislead hitters on a field that is conducive to spinners with a variety of variations.

8. Pakistan

The absence of Usama Mir from the Pakistan team was one of the most important revelations. The leg-spinner had taken 24 wickets in PSL 2024, the most of any player, but the selectors chose not to include him. Their primary spinners are Shadab Khan and Abrar Ahmed. In the meantime, their attack will be strengthened by spin all-rounders like Iftikhar Ahmed and Imad Wasim.

7. England

Adil Rashid, the world's top T20I bowler, and Tom Hartley, a recent addition, are the two mainstays of England's bowling unit. They only have two specialist spinners in their lineup, but Will Jacks, Liam Livingstone, and Moeen Ali are three excellent all-round possibilities.

6. South Africa

There are several spin alternatives available in South Africa, but surprisingly, three of their top spinners are left-handed. The three individuals in charge of the spin section are Bjorn Fortuin, Keshav Maharaj, and Tabraiz Shamsi. They also have Aiden Markram and Tristan Stubbs as possibilities for right-arm spin. This spin-heavy bowling squad is said to be due to their spinners, who have performed better than their pacers in recent years on Caribbean terrain.

Bangladesh appears to have made a well-thought-out decision as they have selected a bowling team that emphasises spin for the competition. The specialist spinners in their lineup are Tanveer Islam, Rishad Hossain, and Mahedi Hasan. This time around, the Tigers boast a potent spin assault because of the addition of experienced all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan and his left-arm spin.

4. New Zealand

During the World Cup, Mitchell Santner and Ish Sodhi will be New Zealand's main weapons. Both are seasoned players with over 100 international Twenty20 matches under their belts. While Santner's strengths are mostly in economical bowling, Sodhi is renowned for his ability to take wickets. In the spin department, the Black Caps will also have the services of Michael Bracewell, Rachin Ravindra, and Glenn Phillips.

3. Sri Lanka

A variety of spinning possibilities are included in Sri Lanka's roster for the main event. The two most dominant players in this division are off-spinner Maheesh Theekshana and skipper Wanindu Hasaranga. Dunith Wellalage, Charith Asalanka, Kamindu Mendis, and Dhananjaya de Silva can all provide an extra choice.

2. India

Four spinners have been selected by Team India for the T20 World Cup. Remarkably, Captain Rohit Sharma was hesitant to disclose the rationale because he believed the opposing captain would adopt his strategy. India has increased its assault with Kuldeep Yadav, Yuzvendra Chahal, and all-rounders Ravindra Jadeja and Axar Patel since the conditions are good for the spinners.

1. Afghanistan

In terms of bowling lineups for the forthcoming T20 World Cup 2024, Afghanistan has one of the best. Their primary strength, as always, is their spin assault, which has the potential to upset some of the tournament favourites. Mujeeb ur Rehman and Noor Ahmed will be under the command of Captain Rashid Khan. Additionally, they will have support from the highly skilled all-around player Muhammad Nabi.
