The spin department is one growing aspect of the shortest format. Over the years, the spin department has evolved. It first started with teams playing finger spinners, like Harbhajan, Shakib, Pragyan Ojha, and many more. Now is the era of leg spinners. It is the era of bowling a fast wrong-un. The orthodox flight and turn seem to have gone out of fashion. Here is a look at the topspin duos in the TATA IPL 2022. From Yuzi and Ash to Bishnoi and Pandya many dynamic duos will be on show. But who’s the best? Here’s a look:
1)Yuzvendra Chahal and Ravichandran Ashwin for Rajasthan Royals:
Yuzvendra Chahal and Ravichandran Ashwin are two of the most successful Indian bowlers in the T20 fiasco. Both the players started with humble beginnings. One played as a young lad for Chennai while the other’s story started at Mumbai. Since then, both the bowlers haven’t looked back. Both have tremendous experience. Chahal and Ash both bowl in the powerplay as well. Yuzi bowls at an economy of 7.5. This is after 8 years at the Chinnaswamy! Ash on the other hand bowls at an economy of 7! Rajasthan will be glad to have them both.
2) Sunil Narine and Varun Chakravarthy for Kolkata Knight Riders:
Sunil Narine and his mystery have been unsolved since 2010. Rohit Sharma, MS Dhoni, Virat Kohli, and ABD all have fallen to the same. Narine was out of form for a few years in between but his recent performances in the UAE have shown signs of a comeback. Varun Chakravarthy on the other hand has the story of a legend. From studying architecture in the backgrounds of Chennai to the foregrounds of international cricket Varun has come a long way. Both players are retained by KKR. Both bowl at an economy under 7! Talk about dynamic duos!
3) Moeen Ali and Ravindra Jadeja will be seen in TATA IPL 2022:
Moeen Ali started as a part-time bowler and ended with 200+ test wickets. Ravindra Jadeja on the other hand is in a league of his own. Both are finger spinners but pose an equal threat to every opposition. Jaddu helps MSD keep the over-rate in check. He bowls at an unreal economy of 7.3. Moeen Ali can be used against the right-hand batter. Both the players are top batters as well and their fielding is never in question. The balance of the Chennai Super Kings becomes perfect.
4) Krunal Pandya/ Deepak Hooda and Ravi Bishnoi will be seen in TATA IPL 2022:
Lucknow Super Giants made a very smart decision by retaining Ravi Bishnoi in the draft. If they would have gone for Yuzi or any other spinner they would have required 7+ Crores. Bishnoi came for 4 Crores and will be doing the same or an even better job. He is backed by experienced spinners. Krunal Pandya and Deepak Hooda. Both these players have been playing in the IPL for a very long time. Krunal bowls his variations very well. His quick-balls are tough to pick. Deepak on the other hand is very orthodox but very clean.
5) Rahul Tewatia/ Jayant Yadav and Rashid Khan will be seen in TATA IPL 2022:
Rahul Tewatia and Rashid Khan or Jayant Yadav and Rashid Khan will be great to see in IPL 2022 for the Gujarat Titans. The Titans from an overall perspective had a poor auction but their spin department looks sorted. Rashid Khan is the best T20 spinner in the world. On the other hand, is Rahul Tewatia or Jayant Yadav. Both these bowlers are experienced. Titans will prefer Jayant Yadav as he gives the added dimension to the team.
